GOPer Stemerman to Launch Campaign, At Site of Former GE Headquarters

David Stemerman will officially join a crowded field in the Republican race to replace Dan Malloy on Monday.

David Stemerman, who calls himself a “[p]olitical outsider and businessman,” will officially join the crowded Republican gubernatorial field on Monday, with an event at the site of GE’s former headquarters in Fairfield.

An advisory for the event, sent to Reclaim Connecticut over the weekend, reads:

At Monday’s event, Stemerman will present ambitious ideas about how to fix Connecticut’s economy, improve the lives of Connecticut families and tackle the tough issues facing the state. Members of the media are invited and encouraged to attend.

Of course, the location of the event – GE’s former headquarters – carries symbolic significance. Expect Stemerman to talk about the exodus of businesses and people leaving the state of Connecticut.

Stemerman is the current leader in campaign funds among all 16-plus candidates in the gubernatorial field on both sides, largely because he plans to self-fund his campaign for governor. At the end of 2017, he reported having $1.6 million in cash on hand.
