HARTFORD COURANT ENDORSES GARBER FOR GOP AG

Republican candidate for attorney general Ross Garber has nabbed the Hartford Courant’s endorsement for the GOP nomination. The Hanging Shad has written recently that Garber does indeed have the momentum against right-wing conservative Martha Dean who is the party-endorsed candidate.

In addition to having the backing of the mayors of Middletown, Norwalk, Manchester, Vernon and Preston, he’s been endorsed by state House Minority Leader Larry Cafero of Norwalk, Litchfield County state Senator Andrew Roraback, Fairfield County’s legislative delegation, Greenwich’s First Selectman and Eastern Connecticut state Senator Guglielmo and others. In words, he has some statewide support.

At the risk of being repetitive, The Shad predicts a Garber victory on Aug. 10th.
