Things are looking bright for Victory Fund endorsed candidate Pedro Segarra in the Hartford, Conn. mayoral race.

On Thursday evening, his main opponent, Shawn Wooden, announced he was dropping out of the race and instead supporting Segarra.

Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy also announced his support for Segarra at the press conference.

Segarra has been serving as mayor of Hartford since he was elevated to the position last year following corruption charges leveled at his predecessor.
