FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- First President Barack Obama announced he would be coming to Connecticut to campaign for Gov. Dannel Malloy. And now first lady Michelle Obama is joining in the work as well.
Michelle Obama will make a campaign appearance in New Haven on Thursday, Oct. 30, to stump for the governor. That is just three days before a scheduled visit by her husband to Bridgeport.
His visit was rescheduled form earlier this month when he canceled to attend a White House meeting on the Ebola crisis. The details of his visit to Bridgeport -- time and location -- have not yet been released.
The first lady’s visit was announced Thursday by the Connecticut Democrats.
Malloy is locked in a tight race against GOP challenger Tom Foley, a rematch of the 2010 race that Malloy won by a slim margin.
The latest poll this week from Quinnipiac University shows Malloy has a razor thin lead of 1 percentage point in the race.
