Malloy’s moment in the spotlight comes just as he is preparing to take over the powerful Democratic Governors Association (DGA) for the 2016 election cycle, when 12 governors' mansions, as well as the White House, will be up for grabs.
“To take a stance like he did is very smart politically,” said Tad Devine, a Democratic strategist and former adviser to John Kerry’s presidential campaign. “It’s a big move for him and I think he’ll gain a lot of attention.”
Since Malloy announced his ban on state-funded travel, governors of Vermont, New York and Washington have taken similar stands, joined by companies like Yelp.
In response to the outcry, Indiana legislators hastily drafted a new bill specifying that businesses in the state cannot refuse service to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.Connecticut's law remains unchanged.
