Team Murphy Welcomes Mayor Segarra, CHDCMay 07 2012 by Nick Fabiani Share on Twitter
Today, Chris welcomed Hartford Mayor Pedro E. Segarra and the Connecticut Hispanic Democratic Caucus to Team Murphy. Joined by Mayor Segarra and Chairman of the CHDC Tomas Reyes, Chris called today "one of the most important days of this election."
In announcing the endorsement, Reyes said, "We know he's not just talking the talk - he's got a track record he can speak from, unlike a lot of the other candidates."
Chris was excited about the endorsement, which came just days after the CHDC debate (link to blog entry), and noted that, "no matter how badly outspent we are, I'm glad to have the voice of the CHDC behind me". He went on to remark that if anyone had any doubts about the strength of the caucus, all they needed to do was go talk to the Governor and Lieutenant Governor down the street.
Any day is great when Team Murphy grows, but there was definitely an added excitement around here today from this endorsement - having the support of the CHDC continue to give us the momentum we need to win!
