Hartford, Ct. – Connecticut Democratic Party Executive Director Michael Mandell released the following statement on Joe Visconti’s announcement.
“Joe Visconti is the embodiment of today’s Connecticut Republican Party. Just like the rest of the GOP gubernatorial field, he’s pushing an extreme right-wing agenda. The only difference between Visconti and his Republican rivals is that he’s slightly more vocal about his support for Donald Trump’s anti-Connecticut agenda. But make no mistake, any one of the GOP candidates would be a rubber stamp for Trump’s backwards policies.”
