ROUNDUP: Lauretti, Srinivasan, Lumaj, and Boughton Announce Endorsements

Four Connecticut gubernatorial candidates on the Republican side announced new endorsements on Wednesday and Thursday.

In the days after Mayor Mark Boughton (R-Danbury) and former First Selectman Tim Herbst (R-Trumbull) announced dozens of endorsements for their Connecticut gubernatorial campaigns, other candidates in the crowded #CTGov race announced their own spate of endorsements.

Rep. Prasad Srinivasan (R-Glastonbury) announced 20 endorsements, including four state representatives and two State Central Committee members.

Mayor Mark Lauretti (R-Shelton) announced a dozen endorsements, including leaders of Derby, Seymour, and Thomaston, and several leaders from the Shelton area.

Mayor Boughton announced a major endorsement on the morning after the GOP’s third gubernatorial debate: Deputy State Senate Republican President Pro Tempore Kevin Witkos (R-Canton).

And Peter Lumaj, a businessman running for governor, announced three new endorsements.

Expect more of these rollouts as the dozen or so major GOP contenders for governor approach what is sure to be a contentious May convention.
