NEW HAVEN - Former President Bill Clinton was in Connecticut today to campaign for Gov. Dannel Malloy.

He attended a fundraiser in New Haven for the state's Democratic party.

Clinton told the audience he believes the state is in a better place now than it was when Gov. Malloy first took office.

Most recent polls have Gov. Malloy and his Republican challenger Tom Foley in a tight race with Foley holding a slight lead.
