President Barack Obama

“It is quite an honor to receive the President’s endorsement and know that he believes in our campaign and our fight for a stronger economy, quality public education, and affordable healthcare for everyone,” Horn said. “This distinction will only fuel our fire to win and give the people of the Northwest Corner the type of representation they deserve.”

Horn’s endorsement by Obama was announced through the national Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC). It is one of only a handful of Connecticut House candidates backed by the former president, who is also a former state legislator. 
“We are excited to join forces with President Obama to highlight the amazing men and women like Maria Horn running in must-watch races for their state legislatures,” said DLCC Executive Director Jessica Post. “We stand united and will do everything we can to elect candidates like Maria who will stand up for democratic values and work to move our nation forward.”
