FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New Britain, CT, January 29, 2018 – Peter Lumaj, Conservative Republican for Governor, announced the endorsement of Former Alderman Jim Sanders, Jr. (R-New Britain) this morning in his bid to become the 2018 Republican Party Nominee for Governor of Connecticut.
Sanders, an outspoken and principled conservative voice in New Britain, joins a growing list of Republican leaders and conservative organizations throughout Connecticut supporting Lumaj’s campaign ahead of the 2018 Connecticut Republican Party Convention that will be held at Foxwoods in May.
“I’m tired of politicians that say one thing and then do another. To turn Connecticut around, we need a real political outsider, a real conservative that can shake things up and dismantle the tax and spend mentality in Hartford. Too often, we are forced to settle for candidates that don’t represent our values – this year we don’t have to do that. Peter Lumaj is a principled conservative outsider that can win. I’m proud to endorse his candidacy for Governor” Sanders stated.
In response to Sanders endorsement, Brock Weber, Campaign Manager for Lumaj, stated, “Jim is the leading conservative voice in New Britain and a man of tremendous integrity and respect. We are happy he’s on board and we look forward to working with him to create a fresh start for Connecticut.” Weber continued, “this endorsement goes to show that Peter’s support is broad and comes from every corner of Connecticut. We have worked hard to build a solid conservative coalition across the state and we are confident that we have the grassroots army in place to capture the Republican nomination. Jim’s endorsement furthers that effort.”
