Ned Lamont & Susan Bysiewicz Team Up

Ned Lamont, Democratic candidate for Governor, today announced he has chosen Susan Bysiewicz as his running mate.

"Democrats need to be unified if we are going to win in November and having Susan join our campaign makes our ticket stronger and makes our party stronger,” Lamont said. “Working together with Susan, we can get Connecticut back on track and make it the place where people want to live and raise their families again.”

Lamont continued, "Susan and I believe in Connecticut, we share progressive values, and we are committed to standing up and creating a brighter future for our state. I am glad that she has joined our team."

Lamont said he found that he and Bysiewicz agree on issues like bringing more business and jobs into the state, pay equity, and building modern transportation infrastructure.

“I am thrilled to join Ned in this fight for Connecticut’s future,” Bysiewicz said. “Now is the time for unity. The stakes in this election are real, and together we are ready to fight for Connecticut values. It will take strong leadership to rebuild this state’s infrastructure, pass a balanced budget, strengthen our public education system, and help Connecticut’s businesses create more jobs, and I know that Ned and I can get the job done."

Lamont and Bysiewicz will tour the state in the coming weeks, talking to voters about their plans for growth through building out new transportation infrastructure, fighting for a more fair economy, expanding clean energy jobs, and creating a workforce pipeline of talent in our education system.
