A near super majority backed House Speaker Chris Donovan over his Democratic rivals for the 5th Congressional District endorsement on Monday at the 2012 nominating convention. Ward 3 Alderman Manny Sanchez seconded the nomination of Donovan who seeks to succeed Cong. Chris Murphy.
New Britain delegates gave unanimous support to Donovan whose involvement in the city dates to his work as a community organizer for Citizens for Action in New Britain (CANB).
Democratic Town Chair John McNamara called it a victory of the grassroots over corporate lobbyists in the effort to send a progressive Democrat to Congress representing the 5th district this year.
