Occhiogrosso disses Foley

Bring it on.

That’s the tenor of a statement put out by the office of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on Tom Foley, who Wednesday confirmed he wants a rematch with the first term Democrat in 2014.

Malloy senior adviser Roy Occhiogrosso had this to say to Hearst Connecticut Newspapers on the race:

“We don’t comment on Tom Foley’s political ambitions,” Occhiogrosso said. “He lost one race. He’s more than welcome to lose another.”

Get your popcorn, Connecticut.
