Hartford, CT - Connecticut Democratic Party Chairman Nick Balletto released the following statement on Governor Malloy’s comments on judicial nominations:
“Governor Malloy was right about the gravity of this issue and the dangers of Connecticut Republican response to the judiciary. Republican gubernatorial candidates have made it perfectly clear they have no respect for the rule of law.

Hartford, CT - You read that correctly. This morning Tim Herbst sent out a press release standing up for the NRA after Governor Dannel Malloy made comments calling out the NRA for dismantling and obstructing gun violence prevention legislation. Tim Herbst has notably dodged questions about how he would address gun violence as Governor and is now making it clear the only issue he’s willing to take a stand for is one defending the NRA.

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.

What is Gov. Sununu thinking? Connecticut Dems’ and New Hampshire Dems’ joint statement on Prescott Bush Dinner
It shows a real lack of judgment that Governor Sununu would associate himself with someone who defended the violent racists behind these events. We would expect that he urges the Connecticut Republican Party to address their equivocation on the matter before he comes to Connecticut to raise money for their efforts to double down on their support of Donald Trump.
