HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says he has not received a subpoena or any other request to testify before a grand jury reviewing funds spent on his 2014 re-election campaign.

Malloy on Tuesday told reporters he wouldn’t comment further on the criminal investigation because it’s “an ongoing process that is supposed to be done without public comment.” Malloy says he hasn’t retained a private attorney in the matter.

The Connecticut Democratic Party has confirmed it’s cooperating with the probe into whether it illegally spent about $278,000 on the Democratic governor’s re-election campaign by using contributions from contractors that cannot be spent on state races.

Both the Connecticut Post and the Hartford Courant reported Tuesday that emails show federal investigators were interested in the party’s fundraising before the November 2014 election.
