FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Incumbent Democrat Dannel Malloy and Republican challenger Tom Foley faced off Wednesday night, Aug. 27, in the first gubernatorial debate for the fall rematch of the 2010 campaign. 

Malloy, the former mayor of Stamford, and Foley, a Greenwich businessman, spent a good portion of the debate on Malloy's economic record and Foley's business record, according to CT Mirror.org

The debate was held onstage at the Norwich Free Academy in Norwich, with both candidates sitting in wingback chairs. 

Malloy also apologized for saying three years ago that teachers could gain tenure simply by showing up, CT Mirror.org reported.

Read the full story here at CT Mirror.org. And watch the full debate online here at the CT-N, the Connecticut Network.

@johnfbraun: I am not following you are you saying the AR15 is a military rifle? Or are you saying it is a COLT? Please explain because a Chevy AVEO IS A CHEVY AND SO IS A CORVETTE. Two totally different things. Please clarify your statement. I clearly know the difference between the 16 and 15 do you! Or am i reading your post incorrectly. thank you

Well he clearly is a moron and has no idea about guns since he only passes feel good laws. The AR15 is civilian version of an m-16 FYI. They are essentially the same however differences in the trigger mechanism. However, putting m16 parts into an ar15 is a felony. View Comment

Malloy is not too bright. He is going to be voted out soon, and maybe CT can actually thrive again. View Comment

The Republicans have had problems with the law all the way back to the days of Nixon.

I don't know why I post my spam on the ct sites when I live in the ghetto Port Chester

Malloy is not too bright. He is going to be voted out soon, and maybe CT can actually thrive again.

WOW malloy still calling the AR15 a military gun. As you can tell he knows nothing about the gun as usual. The AR15 was never issued to any military branch of service. just another day in the life of a misinformed governor without a clue.

John you sound like my type.. Are you a Muslim?

Well he clearly is a moron and has no idea about guns since he only passes feel good laws.
The AR15 is civilian version of an m-16 FYI. They are essentially the same however differences in the trigger mechanism. However, putting m16 parts into an ar15 is a felony.

Straight from the AR-15 section of the Colt web page:

"Throughout the world today, Colt's reliability, performance, and accuracy provide our Armed Forces the confidence required to accomplish any mission."

Also, do a bit of research on what an M16 is.

Thanks for correcting me. I like all Republicans talk before thinking
