Moving Connecticut Forward

With Donald Trump and a Republican Congress working overtime to roll back progress on everything from healthcare to climate change and Connecticut Republicans standing idly by, the Connecticut Democratic Party is fighting for our values by holding Republicans accountable and working to elect Democrats at the federal, state, and local levels.

Trump is Already a Winner at Connecticut Republican Convention

Hartford, CT - Regardless of which candidates emerge with the Republicans’ endorsement at their Convention, Trump is clearly a winner.

Manny Santos, Matthew Corey, and Sue Hatfield won the Republicans’ endorsement on their praise and wholehearted embrace of Donald Trump. And while the entire gubernatorial field has already embraced Donald Trump, Mark Boughton gave a special nod to the President by wearing a Trump golf course polo to the convention.

“Connecticut Republicans are giving Donald Trump his candidates in Connecticut,” said Connecticut Democratic Party Communications Director Christina Polizzi. “We haven’t just seen these candidates embrace Donald Trump--they have actively campaigned on his policies and his rhetoric. The Connecticut Republican Convention is the Donald Trump show, putting his politics and his polos on display. Every single candidate up and down the Republican ticket will not only capitulate to Donald Trump’s agenda, they will be his advocate in Connecticut during their campaign and it is exactly how they would conduct policy if they were to be elected. The only question that remains, when will Donald Trump show up to rally his party’s faithful?”

Democratic State Party Chair Statement on Republican Comptroller and Treasurer Nomination

Hartford, CT - After Republican delegates endorsed Kurt Miller as their nominee for Comptroller and Thad Gray as their nominee for Treasurer, Democratic State Party Chair Nick Balletto released the following statement:

“Republicans across the state have already remained silent as Donald Trump and national Republicans championed two pieces of legislation, the tax bill and the Republican health care repeal, that would have devastated Connecticut financially. We cannot allow a Republican who will compromise our values in Connecticut to be our state’s top financial officer or in charge of our checks and balances.”

Statement from Democratic State Party Chair Nick Balletto on 5th District Nominee

Hartford, CT - After the Republican delegates voted for their Congressional nominees, Democratic State Party Chair Nick Balletto released the following statement:

“Let’s be clear, Manny Santos is not running for Congress so that he can serve the people of Connecticut, he’s running to be closer to Donald Trump. Since the first day of his campaign, Santos has made it clear he is eager to be Donald Trump’s ally in Congress. He supports Donald Trump’s decision to ban transgender people from the military and was endorsed by Connecticut’s NRA. On the issues that Connecticut voters care about, from gun violence prevention, to a woman’s right to choose, to immigration, Manny Santos is going to stand with Donald Trump.
