Gov. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Wyman Congratulate Ned Lamont and Susan Bysiewicz on Gubernatorial Victory
Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman released the following statements congratulating Ned Lamont and Susan Bysiewicz on their victory in the election for Governor and Lt. Governor of the State of Connecticut.
Malloy said, “Elections offer a snapshot of the collective character as a state or nation. It’s our opportunity to affirm who we are and what we value. And today, Connecticut spoke loud and clear that we stand for fairness, inclusivity, and decency. That the politics of President Trump have no home here. That we resoundingly reject his politics of division, falsehoods, and empty promises. I offer my heartfelt congratulations to Governor-elect Ned Lamont and Lieutenant Governor-elect Susan Bysiewicz. Unquestionably, Connecticut has forward momentum, and of all the candidates on the ballot for these offices, they are, by far, the best suited to keep the state moving in the right direction. Under their leadership, Connecticut’s future remains bright.
“Running for office is not easy and it takes a physical and mental toll on a person and their family. I commend all the candidates this year – up and down the ticket – who ran because they wanted to make a difference. I also want to thank every voter who cast a ballot in this election. We are stronger when more people make their voices heard.”
Lt. Governor Wyman said, “Congratulations to Ned Lamont and Susan Bysiewicz for winning Connecticut’s gubernatorial election. Voters made their voices heard today in record numbers, which is a great day for democracy. Ned and Susan ran a competitive campaign, and I wish them both the best of luck leading our state forward. We face difficult challenges ahead, but I know that together we can overcome them and that Connecticut’s best days are ahead of us.”
