Hillary Clinton may be the prohibitive favorite for the Democratic nomination, but there are still some Democrats that aren’t exactly “Ready for Hillary.”
Appearing on MSNBC’s “The Cycle” Thursday, Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy said that he’s “not ready yet” to endorse Clinton, or anyone for that matter, for the Democratic nomination this cycle.
Malloy, who serves as the Democratic Governors Association (DGA) Chairman-elect, told MSNBC’s Krystal Ball that he’s currently “tied down” with his legislative session in the state.
“Governor, as you know, a lot of Democratic elected officials are lining up to endorse Hillary Clinton already. Are you ready to endorse Hillary Clinton?” Ball asked Malloy.
“I’m not ready yet. Quite frankly, I’m tied down at a legislative session. I’ve really pushed whatever I’m going do until after next Wednesday. We’re in the final hours and days of a legislative session. I’ve got to get a budget done, I’ve got to get some legislation passed,” Malloy said.
“Are there issues in particular that you’ll be looking at, though, in making that decision?” Ball asked.
“Well, listen — again, I’ll go back to this. I know all three candidates’ positions pretty well. I have previously supported Hillary Clinton, and I’ve had a good relationship with her. Martin [O’Malley] is a personal friend of mine,” Malloy said. “Bernie [Sanders] I’ve admired from afar, so I think we have three great Democratic candidates, but I’ll speak to that issue after I’m done with my legislative session.”
