Joining Conn. union member’s rally to support the Wis. unions, Gov. Malloy said that he was “proud to stand with you [the union rallying union members] and the workers of Wisonsin.” Id.
Likewise, other Governors are voicing their distaste with Gov. Walker’s actions. Gov. Brian Schweitzer of Montana stated that “[e]very governor has to use his own model.
