There was no public hug between Dan Malloy and John DeStefano, but Malloy did mingle last night with a New Haven Democratic organization that stiffed him at the convention and primary. The New Haven Independent has the details.

Malloy and DeStefano, the New Haven mayor, were rivals for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in 2006. Malloy was lucky enough to narrowly lose a primary to DeStefano, saving him from a landslide defeat by Jodi Rell.

This year, DeStefano and the Democratic organization backed Ned Lamont. Malloy still carried the city in the primary.
