CT-Gov. Candidate Herbst Announces 6 New Endorsements; Up to 21 TotalFebruary 5, 2018
The former first selectman of Trumbull, now a gubernatorial candidate, announced a slate of new endorsements on Monday morning.
Tim Herbst, former first selectman of Trumbull and current gubernatorial candidate, announced a half-dozen new endorsements for his campaign on Monday morning, claiming momentum a little over three months away from the GOP convention in May.
“I have been overwhelmed by the support my campaign to upend business-as-usual in Hartford has gained from every corner of our state,” Herbst said in a release. “This campaign is about building a movement to take back our state from the insiders in Hartford who have pushed us into perpetual and job-crushing fiscal crisis.”
