The campaign for governor in Connecticut is now in its final week and a number of national political figures are expected to come to Connecticut to help the candidates close the deal. Last night Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy and his Republican challenger Tom Foley sought votes on opposite sides of state on Monday.

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy, a former prosecutor, says he believes a crime was committed when traffic jams were engineered in Fort Lee, New Jersey as part of a political vendetta against a Democratic mayor.

Malloy, a Democrat and former mayor, made the comment at a press conference in Hartford on Thursday about an unrelated matter.  He didn't bring up the subject but he did not hesitate to give his opinion when asked about the situation involving his Republican counterpart in New Jersey.
