HARTFORD — Ned Lamont picked up another endorsement from a minority group that’s hoping to “ride the wave of the man who seems like he will win the primary and the race for governor.”
The Connecticut Hispanic Democratic Council has endorsed Democratic Primary Candidate Ned Lamont and is set to make an official announcement in New Haven this afternoon.
“We really want to be with a winner,” said Tomas Reyes. “And we feel it would be a symbiotic relationship.” Reyes chairs the caucus, a statewide organization of politicians, activists, and other stakeholders who promote the election of qualified Latino candidates.
Reyes goes on to say that Ned Lamont, who lost his political party endorment at the Democratic Covention earlier this year, is on Row B. And so is a Latino Democratic challenger, Jerry Garcia. Garcia is running for secretary of state. The caucus also endorsed Garcia.
In 2006, the group endorsed Dan Malloy, the Democratic endorsed candidate for governor this year.
