Murphy, Malloy join list of speakers at DNC convention
Washington – Sen. Chris Murphy, who has raised his profile with his fight for gun control measures in Congress, will be one of the speakers at the Democratic National Convention that will begin in Philadelphia on Monday.
And so will Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who will address the convention on Monday, said a source with the Connecticut Democratic Party.
The DNC already has amassed a list of more than two dozen members of Congress and other Democrats who will have speaking roles, in contrast to the many fewer federal lawmakers who have spoken at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this week.
The DNC said the lawmakers will “speak about their support for Clinton’s vision of an America that is stronger together and where the economy works for everyone, not just those at the top.”
“Additional speakers will continue to be announced throughout the week,” a DNC release said.
