The Ned Lamont campaign for governor released the following statement on the GOP gubernatorial debate hosted by WSHU, Hearst Media and Sacred Heart University today. Watch debate above. Hartford Courant coverage here.
“What we have heard from the Republican gubernatorial candidates this entire campaign cycle is silence. Silence on Trump’s cruel policies. Silence on his efforts to roll back civil rights and women’s rights. Silence while families are torn apart. Silence on how we move our state forward. As expected, they managed to say a whole lot today without saying anything at all,” said Campaign Manager Marc Bradley. “Our state is at a crossroads, and with so much at stake this election, we need a governor who will stand up and protect Connecticut values, put our state on steady financial footing, and fight for equal opportunities for all residents. Middle class families have paid enough, and silence and a blind allegiance to President Trump isn’t the way to move our state forward.”
