State legislators are considering a proposal by Governor Dannel Malloy to bring a bioscience lab to Connecticut. But while Democrats support the idea, some Republicans are questioning the numbers behind it. WNPR’s Jeff Cohen reports.
In Hartford, Pedro Segarra is running for mayor, and his name is on the ballot twice. One of the Segarra’s Democratic opponents says the mayor’s dual endorsement violates local party rules and he wants the state party to intervene. But as WNPR’s Jeff Cohen reports, the dispute is also about who gets to play second political fiddle.
Lots of balls in the air, not many falling today due to on-air fundraising obligations.

1) The city puts out a press release that Nelton Court is getting demolished. Wait, that hasn’t happened yet?
2) Democratic opponents to Mayor Pedro Segarra say he has gotten himself into a tangle by accepting the GOP endorsement. Chasing that down.
3) Helen Ubinas is leaving the Courant. Good for her, sad for us. She writes with a voice so honest it makes the rest of us jealous. But we’re not just losing a good writer; we’re losing one of the best, unrelenting reporters we’ve known. I dare you to challenge me on that one. Thanks for your work. And thanks for making me better.
Governor Dannel Malloy has unveiled the agenda for next week’s special legislative session on jobs. And as WNPR’s Jeff Cohen reports, he says the plan has bipartisan support.
