Major Endorsement in 5th
District: Mark Greenberg is
Endorsed by State Senator
Senate Republican Leader John McKinney
joins leaders supporting Greenberg for Congress.
Mark Greenberg, Republican candidate for
Congress in Connecticut's 5th District, today
announced that he has received the endorsement
of State Senator John McKinney (R-28) of Fairfield.
McKinney, the Republican Leader of the Connecticut State Senate, is serving his eighth term in the Connecticut State Senate representing the towns of Easton, Fairfield, Newtown, Weston and Westport. He was elected Republican Leader of the Senate in June 2007 and is a ranking member on the General Assembly's Housing and Legislative Management committees.
"I am proud to endorse Mark, because I know he will fight in Washington for smaller government, less spending and lower taxes -- the same things that I am fighting for in Hartford," Senator McKinney said. "When I make an endorsement of a candidate, it is based the person and I know Mark will fight for policies that will fix our economy, create jobs and reform the tax code to stimulate growth. And I know Mark strongly opposes the one-size fits all approach of Obamacare, which is hurting people in Connecticut and across the country."
"Mark is right on the issues, he's built a strong organization, great support and Republican leaders are standing behind Mark's candidacy," McKinney said. "By being united in our support, we have a great opportunity to help Mark win this seat next November and to show the voters of the 5th District that Republican leaders and principles are better than the failed policies of the Democrats."
"Senator McKinney is an outstanding leader who has always fought to protect our taxpayers," Greenberg said. "Senator McKinney continues to lead the fight for fiscal common sense and fiscal responsibility and has been a firewall against the Democrats, repeatedly calling them out for state budgets that are in deficit as soon as the ink on the Governor's signature is dry."
With Senator McKinney's endorsement, Mark Greenberg now has over 175 endorsements of 5th District leaders unifying around his candidacy as well as the endorsement of 12 Republican Town Committees in the 5th District.
