    Former President Bill Clinton will be in Hartford, Connecticut, Monday night to support Gov. Dannel Malloy, who is running for re-election, as well as the Connecticut Democrats.

    On Wednesday, President Barack Obama will be in Connecticut to attend a campaign rally for Malloy. The event will be in Bridgeport and its the first public political appearance by the president in this fall election campaign.

    A Quinnipiac University poll released earlier this week put Malloy in a dead heat with Republican Tom Foley.

    When asked whom they'd support if the election were today, 43 percent of voters participating in the poll said Malloy, 43 percent said Foley and 9 percent said petitioning candidate Joe Visconti.

    A Sept. 10 Quinnipiac Poll gave Foley a six-percentage point lead over Malloy.
