In between four interruptions Sunday, Nov. 2, at Bridgeport Central High School, President Obama put the spotlight on\u00a0Gov. Dannel P. Malloy\u2019s handling of gun-control measures, minimum wage increases, and affordable health care as positive influences on the state during the incumbent\u2019s first four years in Hartford. At the end of the day, Obama said, the governor\u2019s race in Connecticut is one between challenger Republican Tom Foley supporting corporations and the incumbent supporting the rights of everyday people. \u201cThe biggest corporations don\u2019t need another champion. The wealthiest Americans don\u2019t need another champion,\u201d he said. \u201cYou do.\u201d On economics, the president said Malloy understands better than Foley that the \u201ctrickle-down\u201d theory of American achievement is false. \u201cLooser rules on big banks, cutting the safety net for people. We tried all that stuff, and it did not work,\u201d Obama said. \u201cWe don\u2019t want to go back to that vision. Dan has a very different vision that is rooted in a conviction that in America prosperity never trickles down from the top, it grows on a rising tide of equality.\u201d A large emphasis of his address also focused on women\u2019s issues, stressing the Democratic governor has the best chance to strengthen women\u2019s rights in the state. \u201cWe need leaders with a 21st century mindset. If you ask [Republicants] about climate change, they say they aren\u2019t scientists. But, when you ask them if a woman has a right to make their own healthcare choices, they\u2019re all doctors. When women succeed, America succeeds,\u201d the president said.
