On Monday, May 14, U.S. Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) was endorsed as the Democratic candidate for Connecticut’s First Congressional District.
In a statement, Larson said, “I am honored and humbled to be endorsed as the Democratic candidate for the First Congressional District here in Connecticut. I have been sent to Washington to bring solutions, and that has been my focus. I am working to: expand and enhance Social Security; rebuild our nation’s infrastructure and strengthen the middle class; stabilize our health care system and bring costs down by allowing those 50 to 64 years old to buy into Medicare; and to make college more affordable by expanding National Service programs. I am looking forward to another campaign season and to the next Congress, where I will continue my fight for those in the First District.”
