Hartford, Ct. – Last night, the Connecticut Republican Party held its quadrennial straw poll. And as expected, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump handily won. The Connecticut Democratic Party released the following statement:
“Donald Trump‘s resounding victory in the GOP straw poll proves once again that Trump‘s racist, xenophobic views – once the right-wing fringe of the party – now represent the mainstream of the Connecticut Republican Party. Let me be very clear: Trump‘s proposals – including his ‘ban on Muslims’ – are not only unconstitutional, they are un-American.
