Statement from CT Democratic Party Chair Nancy DiNardo on the new Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives.

The Republican Party is demonstrating its extremism at every level of government. They have nominated right wing candidates across Connecticut, including at least one who participated in the January 6th insurrection. Today, after churning through candidates for three weeks, Republicans in Congress elected a Speaker who led the fight to overturn the 2020 election; denies climate change; opposed same sex marriage and supports conversion therapy; supports a national abortion ban; would slash Medicare and Social Security. The list goes on.

On Nov. 7th, democracy will be on the ballot, as it will be again in November of 2024. Republicans will have to answer for putting their MAGA agenda ahead of what voters in Connecticut and across the country want and need.
