Gov. Dannel Malloy is preparing to address the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. on Wednesday, Sept. 5. In the meantime, he’s been making the media rounds and taking partisan shots as Democrats ready for their moment in the spotlight.
"It's a short speech, but it's not going to be about me,'' Malloy told the Associated Press, referencing N.J. Governor Chris Christie. "I'm not like other governors. I'm not showing up to give a speech about myself. That was rampant at the Republican convention.''
The two governors have sparred in the past through the media. Malloy is scheduled to go on stage at 6 p.m.
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe program, Malloy called the Republican National Convention a “ tea party convention that they invited a few Republicans to.”
“It was the me, me, me convention, and I think it’s going to be different here,” Malloy said, according to Politico. “This is our chance to make it very clear why our candidate is very different than Mitt Romney.”
