Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, D-Conn., has nominated Andrew J. McDonald, an openly gay former state legislator, to become a justice of the Connecticut Supreme Court. McDonald left the state’s General Assembly two years ago to become Malloy’s general counsel. "He is qualified and I am confident he will uphold the state constitution and carry out his responsibilities as a Supreme Court Justice with the highest degree of impartiality and integrity," said state Senate Minority Leader John McKinney, a Republican.
