"The delegates have spoken -- they want a primary." That's the word from the Lamont campaign as the convention is now moving forward with nominations for Lt. Gov. Nikki O'Neill is currently putting Nancy Wyman's name in nomination; Mary Glassman was nominated earlier.
While Dan Malloy is proudly speaking of his qualifying for public financing. the Lamont campaign reiterates that while Lamont has always supported public financing, in this campaign, the Republican nominee will not have a spending cap.

"We must compete on a level playing field. The stakes are too high."
