Malloy meets with Biden

Because he had pressing business at home, Gov. Dannel Malloy could not accept Vice President Joe Biden’s invitation to come to Washington Wednesday to attend President Obama’s release of an ambitious package of proposals aimed at curbing gun violence.

But Malloy traveled to the nation’s capital to meet with Biden on Friday.

“It’s just a time for the two of them to get together,” said Andrew Doba, the governor’s communications director.

Doba said the issue at the meeting will be gun control “and what ideas the state might pursue.”

Malloy will stay in Washington to speak at the Conference of Mayor’s Winter meeting on Saturday and to attend President Obama’s second inauguration on Monday.
