Statement from Executive Director Mandi Lewis on Bob Stefanowski’s Response

Hartford, CT – After Bob Stefanowski issued a response to the Hartford Courant article on his association with a white nationalist, Connecticut Democratic Party Executive Director Mandi Lewis released the following statement:

“Saying you ‘disagree’ with bigotry is to legitimize racism as a point of view. It’s not enough to ‘disagree.’ All of us have a moral obligation to repudiate it, and this statement is effectively the equivalent of a “good-people-on-both-sides” claim from a candidate who’s proud of an endorsement from Donald Trump. Bob Stefanowski needs to condemn Larry Kudlow and apologize.”
