Former House Majority Leader David Pudlin said it seems like Dan Malloy, the other top Democratic contender, is focused solely on getting delegate support at the Democratic convention, whereas Lamont is building a base for the November election.
“There’s something special about the Lamont campaign—he’s fixated on winning,” Pudlin said as he waited for Monday‘s announcement at Trinity-on-Main in New Britain.
Pudlin said by focusing on the convention and the delegates Malloy is ignoring a large segment of the population. In order to win in November, a candidate has to win the support of unaffiliated voters who will ultimately decide the election, Pudlin said.
