U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy Endorses Ned Lamont for Governor

U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., today released a statement endorsing Ned Lamont for Governor. 

“In everything Ned has accomplished in his life, he has shown that he will work harder than anyone to present outside-the-box ideas that solve problems. I've known Ned for over a decade, and what sets him apart is that he dives into the details of issues and is willing to listen to everybody. He knows Hartford needs fresh ideas, and that’s what he’s all about,” Murphy said. “Ned also knows that President Trump’s values aren’t our values here in Connecticut. I'm all in for him and Susan because they're the team I trust to bring new ideas and new energy to Hartford and protect Connecticut from the worst of the Trump agenda.”

“Sen. Murphy has led the nation in progressive policies like sensible gun safety laws, protecting women’s choice and preserving the environment. I’m honored to have earned his support. He will be a critical partner in defending against the Trump agenda and protecting Connecticut values,” Lamont said. “Voters in this fall’s election have a clear choice – maintaining the status quo or revitalizing our urban centers so that our cities can be the engines that boost our state toward economic success. Connecticut needs a leader who will work with the business community to attract new, good-paying jobs and create more economic opportunity for all residents.”
