Connecticut Delegates listen to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy address the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Governor Dannel Malloy kept to the promise he made to reporters. He didn't talk about himself in his speech at the Democratic National Convention but instead he went on the attack.
Malloy slammed the Romney-Ryan budget plan.
"It isn't conservative," Malloy told the hall full of delegates in Charlotte. "It's harsh, it's radical and it is wrong."
The governor's speech was under ten minutes. He spoke just before 7 p.m. Wednesday.
He touted President Obama's record saying 4.5 million private sector jobs have been created.
"We need to fight for our children, fight for our senior citizens, fight for women's rights, fight for the middle class and fight for our country's future," Malloy said.
At one point Governor Malloy got the crowd on their feet when talking about women's issues and the three reasons why people should vote.
"Your sister, your mother and your daughter," Malloy said. "Let's stand for them."
East Hartford Representative John Larson spoke about an hour before Governor Malloy.
Larson focused on the importance of Medicare.
"Don't ever tell me or any American that's a hand out," Larson said. "It's the insurance they paid for."
Delegates were on their feet when Larson told them to stand up for Obama.
"If we stand together with President Obama, not only will the eagle keep flying, it will soar," Larson exclaimed.
But Democrats face some challenges in this blue state.
Republican Linda McMahon has a narrow lead in the senate race against Democratic Representative Chris Murphy.
State GOP Chairman Jerry Labriola said the state will be in play come November. A recent Quinnipiac Poll shows Mitt Romney is down by seven points.
Election day is two months away.
