A chilly Malloy-Bysiewicz encounter on Polish Day
At a Polish Day observance, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy bent low today to greet a seated Mary Heslin, a member of the administration of Gov. William A. O’Neill in the 1980s. He didn’t quite make the same effort with Susan Bysiewicz.
Malloy and Bysiewicz were together — more or less — for the first time since Malloy endorsed Chris Murphy, her opponent for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate.
Malloy was returning a favor from 2006, when Bysiewicz declined to make an endorsement after Malloy won the gubernatorial nod from the Democratic convention.
UPDATE: While a staffer initially said there was no contact between the two, a spokesman later said the governor and Bysiewicz later acknowledged each other.
