    CT shattered the glass ceiling with first female governor

    We the people of Connecticut are blessed. We defined the American industrial revolution and became the Arsenal of Democracy that President Roosevelt called for during World War Two.

    We shattered the glass ceiling of gubernatorial history thanks to Ella Grasso of Windsor Locks as the nation's first female governor, elected in her own right.

    Supports gay marriage and equal rights for all

    Malloy supports equality and helped fight for marriage equality, said several people at a press conference, mentioning a lwaw enacted in 2005 that legalized civil unions. A few years later, the state began to recognize same-sex marriages. Malloy said that equal rights is important and have to be extended to all. If he is governor, he said there would be no retreat on equality. Discrimination against anyone, including transgender individuals, should be illegal.
