Facing a tough re-election battle, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy stopped by Democratic headquarters for a warm welcome from local supporters Wednesday evening before partisans opened their Westport election headquarters.

"This is a tough election year," Malloy told local Democrats. While he said he believes there are "more than enough votes to win," he added, "There's a lot of work to be done."

Malloy is seeking re-election to a second term, and facing a familiar Republican opponent -- Greenwich businessman Tom Foley -- who he narrowly beat four years ago.

"This guy is not right for Connecticut," Malloy said of his opponent. "He's not telling the truth about the record."

After posing for some photos, Malloy went on a walking tour of downtown, led by Selectman Helen Garten, state Rep. Jonathan Steinberg, who is also running for re-election, and Melissa Kane, the chairwoman of the Downtown Steering Committee.
