With Bob Stefanowski entering the race for Governor, Connecticut Democratic Party Chair Nancy DiNardo released the following statement:
“Bob Stefanowski is too extreme for Connecticut. His economic plan for our state would have devastated schools, rolled back health care, and laid off health care workers. He has an ‘A’ rating from the NRA and opposed common sense legislation passed in the wake of Sandy Hook. When it comes to working families, he opposes having a minimum wage altogether. And when asked to grade Donald Trump as President, he give him an ‘A’ and called Trump’s endorsement of his candidacy ‘pretty cool.’
“While Bob Stefanowski promotes an extreme agenda, Governor Lamont has fixed the state budget, built up a record rainy day fund, enacted paid family leave, supported small businesses, and attracted major companies to our state – all without tax increases. He’s overseeing the most successful vaccine roll-out in the nation with strong, steady leadership at a time when Connecticut needs it most. And he’s done it by bringing people from both parties together, working in a bipartisan fashion.
“The contrast is incredibly clear. While Governor Lamont is leading our state out of a global health crisis, fixing our budget, and supporting businesses big and small, Bob Stefanowski has an extreme agenda that would take our state backwards.”
