Gov. Dannel P. Malloy

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, a Democrat who swam against a Republican tide to win re-election last year, is headed to New Hampshire next week to campaign for Hillary Clinton.

Malloy is tentatively scheduled to campaign Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning in New Hampshire, home of the first-in-the-nation presidential primary.

His trip was confirmed Thursday by spokesmen for the Connecticut Democratic Party and the Clinton presidential campaign in New Hampshire.

“I’ve been an admirer of hers for many years, going back to when she was first lady,” Malloy said in June, when he endorsed her. “I want to see her get elected president. I also think she is the best candidate the Democrats could run. I think she is one of the most experienced candidates that any party has run.”
