Malloy Apologizes for “Offending Anyone;” Foley Talks About Being Boring

This morning on our pre-election edition of Face the State we are joined by the two major candidates for Governor, Democrat Dan Malloy and Republican Tom Foley.

We talked about taxes, undecided voters, the ads accusing Foley of closing down a factory for personal profit, and a radio ad.

The campaign ad featuring the voice of Governor Rell on behalf of Republican Tom Foley contains a word I really don’t ever remember hearing in political advertising before:  “temperament.” 

“Tom Foley has the right temperament to be governor,” Rell tells radio listeners.

 By all accounts, it is a swipe at Democrat Dan Malloy, whose temperament in a televised debate led Foley to call him “Angry Dan.”     Hartford Courant columnist Rick Green  wrote about it here:   http://blogs.courant.com/rick_green/2010/10/the-malloy-v-foley-debate

During  a taping of Face the State I asked both Malloy and Foley about the temperament issue.    I also asked them to respond to a viewer who said “she was offended by Malloy, and found Foley to be boring.”   You can see their responses morning at 11.

We also have analysis of all the races from Hartford Courant columnist Kevin Rennie who also writes the blog www.dailyructions.com
