Hartford, Ct. – Connecticut Democratic Party Chairman Nick Balletto released the following statement on Senator Murphy’s launch of Fight Back CT.
“Perhaps no one in the United States Senate has been more active and effective in pushing back against the Trump administration’s dangerous agenda than Chris Murphy. He successfully led the charge against the backwards Trumpcare proposal that would have stripped health coverage from 24 million Americans, and he is working tirelessly to stop the president’s dangerous cuts to programs that help our most vulnerable neighbors – children, seniors, and low-income people. In short, Senator Murphy is fighting to preserve Connecticut’s values in these tumultuous times.
“Since January 20 Democrats have been mobilizing across this state like never before. We’ve seen grassroots organizations and activities pop up across the state and country. Right here in Connecticut we’ve seen the difference that can be made when activists show up and make their voice heard at Republican town halls or the electoral impact that volunteers can have when they step up for local and state elections. With Senator Murphy’s inspiring message and his ability to organize, I am confident that he will be a great partner as we work tirelessly to harness this newfound energy and elect Democrats up and down the ballot in 2018.”
