News Roundup: Lamont-Stefanowski Debate

Gubernatorial candidates Ned Lamont and Bob Stefanowski faced off Wednesday in their first head-to-head debate of the campaign season.

Lamont is a Democrat. Stefanowski is a Republican.

CT News Junkie, a state news site, reported that the Republican, a first-time candidate, stuck to his point — Lamont is nothing more than a clone of current Gov. Dannel Malloy, one of the country’s least popular governors, according to polling.
