As SCOTUS Prepares to Overturn Roe v. Wade, Bob Stefanowski to Host Leading Anti-Abortion Governor

CT Democratic Party Chair Nancy DiNardo’s response to Bob Stefanowski hosting anti-abortion Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts:

“Days after releasing a weak and hollow claim that he supports abortion rights in Connecticut, Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Stefanowski is going to host one of the country’s most extreme anti-abortion governors. Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts has not only applauded the Texas abortion ban, he’s said he’s working ‘pro-life plans for Nebraska.’   

Why is Ricketts coming to Connecticut and why is he spending time with Bob? Abortion rights are under attack, and Bob is hanging out with a Governor who wants his state to outlaw abortion if Roe is overturned.  

It isn’t enough to just say you support Connecticut’s existing laws. Voters deserve to know if Bob would launch similar ‘pro-life plans’ if he is elected Governor of Connecticut.”
