WALLINGFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gov. Dannel Malloy and two of his potential rivals are appearing before the Connecticut Working Families Party, seeking the third party’s political endorsement.

If the Democratic governor receives the WFP’s backing, as expected, his name will appear twice on the November general election ballot. He received their endorsement in 2010.

Senate Minority Leader John McKinney and petitioning candidate Jonathan Pelto, a former Democratic lawmaker and Malloy critic, are also scheduled to appear at Saturday’s candidate forum. It will be held at the Carpenters Local 24 Union Hall in Wallingford.

The forum will give the candidates an opportunity to explain what they will do to help working and middle class families. They also will field questions on issues including money in politics, collective bargaining rights and education.
