Today, Team Murphy launched its newest coalition - Students for Murphy - on Yale's Campus in New Haven. Well over 50 students joined Chris in launching the group - and we're excited to have them on the Team.
We're really excited to launch this group. First, it recognizes Chris's strong record of fighting for the issues that students care the most about - everything from student loans and health care to LGBT rights and women's equality.
"My job is to stick up for everybody. But if I'm not standing up for students, as someone who is paying back my student loans today, or if I'm not standing up for young families, as the parent of a 4 year old and a 10 month old, then who is? Our mission as a nation and our mission as a state has to be getting more kids more quickly through college with skills that matter for this economy, and then making life more affordable in your twenties and thirties, so you can immediately start putting money back into the economy, rather than just paying back your bills," Chris said at the launch event.
