Gov. Malloy, CT Dems’ Statements On Hillary Clinton’s Victory In The CT Primary

Hartford, Ct. – Gov. Dan Malloy, Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman, and Connecticut Democratic Party Chairman Nick Balletto released the following statements on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s victory in today’s Democratic presidential primary.

“Today Connecticut Democrats made the right choice,” said Governor Malloy. “Secretary Clinton is the right candidate to move our country forward and grow our economy from the middle out. As she has proved throughout her career, Hillary Clinton gets results, and I am proud to have endorsed her candidacy. I will continue to work hard to make sure she is elected President of the United States this November, and I urge all Connecticut Democrats to do the same. Together we can and will defeat Donald Trump and his extremist agenda.”

“I’d like to congratulate Hillary Clinton on a hard-fought and well-deserved victory,” said Lt. Gov. Wyman. “I have always admired Secretary Clinton’s unique ability to effect positive change, and I know that her policies and leadership will strengthen our communities and families. Connecticut Democrats understand that by uniting behind Secretary Clinton’s optimistic vision for the future of our country, we can not only defeat the GOP nominee, but we can build on President Obama’s legacy and move our country forward.”

“Congratulations to Secretary Clinton on her victory in today’s primary,” said Chairman Balletto. “She is a lifelong champion for the values we as Democrats hold dear. I also want to congratulate Senator Sanders on a hard-fought campaign here in Connecticut. The bottom line is that either of our Democratic candidates would build on President Obama’s successes and move our country forward, while Donald Trump and the Republicans would take us backwards.”
