Campaign Update: DFA Leader Joins NB Democrats For Chris Donovan

Sixteen days from the August 14th Primary efforts to reach voters and maximize turnout are increasing in New Britain and across the 5th Congressional District.

On Saturday, Democracy for America (DFA) Chairman Jim Dean joined New Britain Democrats in a canvas and phoning on behalf of endorsed Democrat Chris Donovan in the 5th Congressional District race.

DFA, a grassroots progressive organization supportive of progressive candidates and policies, has endorsed Donovan.  “Chris Donovan has been a champion for our values in the State House, and together we have the opportunity to send him to the U.S. House, said Dean, a Connecticut resident. “As a long-time organizer, Chris has never given up the fight for our communities. He’s been a champion for equality, workers’ rights and the environment. Chris is running a grassroots campaign — not only because he wants to be the people’s representative, but also because he knows that grassroots organizing is the key to building the progressive movement.”
