Connecticut Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy's campaign is brushing aside an offer of a truce on personal attacks from his Republican opponent, Greenwich businessman Tom Foley.

During a contentious televised debate on Thursday night, Foley questioned Malloy's integrity, saying the governor had been investigated for corruption when he was mayor of Stamford. Malloy responded by questioning Foley’s business ethics and claiming that Foley had lied to the FBI about a 1981 car crash that had involved Foley spending a night in jail.

He went further to say Malloy is untrustworthy because he had been investigated for corruption when he was mayor of Stamford. Malloy responded by referring to a 1981 car crash that involved Foley.
