Hartford, CT – Last night’s historic win in Stratford has made national headlines. Over the last few weeks, grassroots energy poured into Connecticut’s 120th district and Phil Young’s campaign and last night we saw the results of those efforts. Connecticut voters rejected Trump’s playbook of scare tactics and those of the leadership in the Connecticut Republican Party. It’s clear, nationally and in Connecticut, that Democrats have the energy and momentum to fight back. This started with the Democrats flipping 22 towns in November 2017, and continued with last night’s results.
Democratic candidates and elected officials standing up and fighting for Connecticut families and our values can know that there is a grassroots infrastructure ready to back them up.
