Malloy Road-Tests a Stump Speech for 2014

By Mark Pazniokas

The soft opening of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s unannounced re-election campaign is under way. Over the late summer and fall, Malloy has honed the elements of a 2014 stump speech, road-testing themes and images calculated to create a quickening sense of progress after decades of stagnation.

Unable to credibly claim the economy is fixed and the state’s fiscal woes are solved, Malloy’s message is that the state is winning small victories on many fronts, positioning the Connecticut economy to grow on a foundation of smart investments in education, technology, infrastructure and commerce. More than anything, he is trying to create a sense of momentum.

“I want people to understand this is not about any one thing. Or one bullet that is going to cure everything, or one pill, I should say, that it is going to cure everything,” Malloy told a business audience today during a Metro Hartford Alliance breakfast. “This is about long-term hard work, day in and day out, that stays the course.”

In the first-term Democratic governor’s recent speeches, echoes can be heard of the broad themes that President Obama successfully used in 2012 to make a case for his second term, despite stubbornly high unemployment and a tepid economic recovery, the same conditions confronting Malloy.
