HARTFORD – A big-city push is brewing in the race for the Democratic endorsement for comptroller, the job now held by Nancy Wyman, who was nominated to run for lieutenant governor.
Waterbury Mayor Michael Jarjura, a candidate for comptroller, said Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch and New Haven Mayor John DeStefano are helping him move delegates his way.
“The big cities are saying we have to be represented on this ticket,” Jarjura said. “There will be a couple of ballots. We are doing pretty good.”
When reminded that Dan Malloy, Stamford’s former mayor, just received the party’s endorsement in the race for governor, Jarjura said that Stamford doesn’t count as one of the “big cities.”
