Senator Blumenthal Joins Team MurphyMay 21 2012 by Nick Fabiani Share on Twitter
Today was another exciting day at Team Murphy - at Capital Community College in Hartford, Chris was endorsed by Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal.
Following Chris' resounding win at the state Democratic Convention, Senator Blumenthal noted that Chris was the only candidate who could take on Linda McMahon in the fall, and noted that Chris has an incredible record on expanding access to health care and in protecting women's rights against the Republican onslaught.
"I believe strongly that Chris will be an extraordinary United States Senator," Blumenthal said to the crowd assembled to watch the event. "He has experience winning tough races, and we're going to need someone who is capable of winning a tough race this year if we're going to have a Democrat in the United States Senate."
Chris was extremely excited to receive Blumenthal's endorsement - both because of his record fighting for the same issues Chris cares deeply about, but also because Blumenthal has critical experience fighting and winning against Linda McMahon, and Chris is looking forward to his help in doing it again.
"Dick Blumenthal knows how to beat Linda McMahon," Chris said. "He knows it's not the number of ads on TV, it's the number of boots on the ground. And so to have his support in this race, and to have him as an advisor on my side, means the world to me."
