Connecticut Governor Malloy Fires Back At Pence..And It’s EPIC!

We’ve all seen the full page ad Gov. Mike Pence took out in the WSJ this week asking three Connecticut companies to move to Indiana.  Well, Connecticut Governor Dannell Malloy reopened to Pence’s ad in an interview with the Hartford Courant on Thursday and it is EPIC!

On Wednesday, a full-page ad in the Wall Street Journal took aim at Malloy and the budget controversy, saying “friends don’t let friends pay higher taxes.” It was paid for by the Indiana Economic Development Corporation and addressed to General Electric Inc., Aetna Inc. and Travelers, three companies that have criticized the tax hikes. Pence, a Republican, sent a public letter to the chief executives of the three companies inviting them to visit Indiana.

Malloy first clashed with Pence in March over Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which offered protections to businesses that refused to serve gay and lesbian customers. Calling the act discriminatory, Malloy briefly banned state-funded travel to Indiana. And on Thursday, he echoed his earlier criticism.

“Listen, I think the governor is trying to cover his tracks,” Malloy said. “I think what he should be saying is, ‘If you want your employees to be forced to live in a state with a bigoted governor, come to Indiana.’ ”
