Connecticut Governor backs Joe Biden

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont (D) backed former Vice President for the Democratic presidential nomination Tuesday.

“When my campaign needed a final push last fall, @JoeBiden was there. I’ve gotten to know him more over the years and now, I’m grateful that he’s thrown his hat in the ring to run against ,” Lamont tweeted, along with a photo of Biden campaigning for him.

“As Democrats, we are fortunate to have such an impressive field. The strength of our candidates is good for our democracy and for us as a nation. Joe has spent his entire life fighting for hard working American families. That’s the kind of President we need now more than ever.” 

Biden already received the backing of his home state governor,  (D) of Delaware.

Lamont contributed to Biden’s campaign, according to the Hartford Courant.

The governor’s backing comes as Biden’s lead in the Democratic primary wanes. Although he still leads most polls, his margins have generally shortened since last week’s presidential debate.

Connecticut’s presidential primary will take place in April 2020.

Connecticut Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D) and (D) have yet to weigh in on the race.
