The Working Families Party announced their endorsement of incumbent Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and his running mate, Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman Tuesday, shutting out challengers Jonathan Pelto and state Sen. John McKinney.

The WFP endorsed Malloy and Wyman in 2010, when the two were able to narrowly defeat Tom Foley, who is running again. Foley faces a primary challenge from McKinney on Aug. 12 for the Republican nomination, while Pelto is running on the Education and Democracy party line.

This latest endorsement allows Malloy and Wyman to appear on both the Democratic and WFP party lines.

“Governor Malloy has been a champion for working and middle class families and the uninsured,” Lindsay Farrell, the Executive Director of the Connecticut Working Families Party said in a statement. “He has been a critical ally on a number of important issues to our Party, and has earned our support for another term.”

WFP applauded Malloy’s work in creating a statewide policy for paid sick days and raising the minimum wage.
