After much hemming and hawing, Ned Lamont of Greenwich, will face off with Dan Malloy of Stamford, next Tuesday in Rocky Hill. It will be carried on Channel 3 and CPTV. Malloy, the gubernatorial candidate endorsed in the Democratic state convention in May, is behind Lamont in the polls and probably needs a clear victory to gain the nearly 10 points he’s behind, heading into the August 10 primary. Malloy has been pretty relentless in hammering Lamont for a one-on-one. In the spirit of Linda McMahaon, the WWE exec running for US Senate, will face raking be allowing in the Malloy\Lamont cage match? Maybe the debate will generate actual voter interest in the primary.
