Here’s what he said this morning at 6:55 a.m.:
“We’ve been confident that Dan Malloy and Nancy Wyman would be declared the winners. We’ll wait for the Secretary of the State to make it official, and will then have more to say.”
Think he could wait?
Here’s what he said last hour…before the SOTS made it official:
“I appreciate and respect Tom Foley’s perspective, but as Nancy and I have been since early Wednesday morning, we are 100 percent confident that we have been chosen by the voters to be Connecticut’s next Governor and Lieutenant Governor. And chosen by a margin comfortably outside what is required for a recount.
“As is the case with more than a few other races in other states across the country, this race is taking a few extra days to play out. Nancy and I think it should be allowed to play out in an orderly fashion and we support the process established by law.
“We’re as anxious as everyone else is to get the final numbers. We’re also continuing our intensive efforts to create an administration that is up and running, and ready for the challenges awaiting us when we take office on January 5. To do otherwise would be irresponsible.”
