STAMFORD, Conn. -- Gov. Dannel Malloy has endorsed fellow Democrat David Martin for mayor of Stamford.
Malloy gave the endorsement at an event Monday in the lobby of the University of Connecticut's Stamford campus.
State Rep. William Tong, who was backed by Malloy in the Democratic primary in September, also was on hand for the endorsement in a sign of party unity.
Martin will face Republican Michael Fedele, the former lieutenant governor under Gov. M. Jodi Rell, in the Nov. 5 election.
Michael Pavia, the current Republican mayor of Stamford, is not running for re-election.
