Hours after the Republicans ended their national convention, Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy took a partisan swipe at the opposition while promising to keep his speech short next week at the Democratic Convention.
Speaking to reporters Friday morning, Malloy said he can get to the point and he can ramble but he never talks to a chair. He was referring to Clint Eastwood's speech to Republicans in Tampa, Fla., Thursday night when he addressed an imagined President Barack Obama seated in an empty chair.
Malloy also jabbed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, saying his speech will not be about himself, unlike other governors. The two governors have sparred long-distance over taxes and other policies.
Christie was the Republicans' keynote speaker. Malloy said his speech will not be in prime time.
