Gov. Malloy meets with President Obama in Washington

WASHINGTON - Gov. Dannel Molloy (D-Conn.) met with President Barack Obama and more than a dozen other Democratic governors today to discuss how they can revive the nation?s economy.

Today's meeting was between Obama and the Democratic Governor's Association. Following the meeting, the association held a news conference where it said its top priority was figuring out ways to stimulate the economy and create jobs.

"We talked a lot about the importance of a reliable power grid but also the importance of bringing people together so that we have a transportation reauthorization bill so that we can do what the nation needs to create jobs," said Gov. Martin O'Malley (D-Md.), who is the group?s chairman.

According to officials, Malloy will be in Washington all weekend, attending more meetings that focus on the economy and job creation.
