Hartford, Ct. – Connecticut Democratic Party Chairman Nick Balletto released the following statement.
“We are a small state with a small congressional delegation, but, in the age of Trump, Connecticut Democrats will have an outsized influence. As Republicans in Congress aim to take health care from millions of Americans, Democrats will fight for quality, affordable coverage for all. As Republicans try to roll back environmental protections, Democrats will fight for clean air and water for our children and families. And as Republicans actively undermine ethical standards, Democrats will fight for honesty and transparency in government.
“I want to congratulate our entire congressional delegation – Congressman Larson, Congressman Courtney, Congresswoman DeLauro, Congressman Himes, and Congresswoman Esty – on their swearing in. Each of our members of Congress has proven to be a fighter not only for his or her district, but for the values we share as Democrats. We will need that fight now more than ever.”
