Hartford, Ct. – Connecticut Democratic Party Executive Director Alynn Woischke released the following statement in response to the news that GOP frontrunner Donald Trump will campaign in Connecticut.
“Donald Trump has run a campaign based on hatred and division. He has lied and insulted his way to the top of the Republican field. Trump‘s message may sit well with Chairman J.R. Romano and the base of Connecticut’s Republican Party, but it will not sit well with Connecticut’s women – who he has promised to punish if they seek an abortion, or with immigrants – who he has called rapists and murderers, or with Connecticut’s Muslims – who he has promised to ban from entering the country.
“Donald Trump‘s proposals are dangerous and un-American, and Connecticut voters will soundly reject them this November. And make no mistake, Connecticut Republicans up and down the ballot will have to contend with Donald Trump as their standard bearer this election.”
