MA Governor is Voting Against Trump, Where Do Fasano and Klarides Stand?

CT Dems’ reaction:

“Donald Trump’s campaign has been built on fear, insults, deception, and outright bigotry, but Connecticut’s elected Republicans have refrained from criticizing even the most abhorrent of Trump’s actions and proposals. Governor Baker set the example after Donald Trump won the Massachusetts primary by declaring he would not vote for Trump. Will Connecticut’s highest ranking Republicans, Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano and House Minority Leader Themis Klarides, to follow that lead and commit to voting against Donald Trump if he wins Connecticut’s GOP Primary on April 26th?

“It is abundantly clear that a Trump presidency would be an unmitigated disaster. Will Senator Fasano and Representative Klarides succumb to blind party loyalty and support Trump, or will they show leadership of their caucuses and refuse to vote for him? Connecticut voters deserve to know.” – Connecticut Democratic Party spokesman Leigh Appleby
