Themis Klarides? Silent.
Len Fasano? Silent.
J.R. Romano? Defensive.
“The Courant is exactly right. Silence is complicity. Donald Trump’s attack on a Gold Star family is indefensible. While Republicans around the country hasten to distance themselves from Trump’s despicable rhetoric, Connecticut Republicans remain silent, as they have throughout this campaign. The time is now for Connecticut GOP leaders including Len Fasano and Themis Klarides to make clear whether they stand with Donald Trump or against him. Silence is no longer acceptable.” – Connecticut Democratic Party Executive Director Michael Mandell
