Ganim Statement Regarding Jonathan Harris Withdrawal From Governor’s Race

BRIDGEPORT – Bridgeport Mayor and Democratic candidate for governor Joe Ganim issued the following statement regarding the withdrawal of Jonathan Harris from the governor’s race.

“I like Jonathan and wish him well.  Although many things unite us as Democrats, as the field narrows, delegates and voters will be able to see more clearly the differences between the candidates.  As the only big city mayor in this race who has balanced budgets, my campaign is about building a new Connecticut economy that works for everyone, not just a few, and that begins by making our cities once again engines of economic growth.  And as a second chance Mayor, our campaign is also about inclusion and providing an opportunity to all those who haven’t even had a first chance to succeed in this state.”
