On Monday John Blankley, candidate for Connecticut’s 36th state senate district, called on his opponent, Sen. Scott Frantz, to denounce the Republican nominee for President, Donald Trump and to declare publicly that he will not vote for him in November.
“I made my position clear in press articles in April that Donald Trump is too dangerous and inexperienced to be Commander-in-Chief,” said Blankley. “His disparagement this weekend of the family of Army Capt. Humayun Khan, a Muslim-American soldier who died in Iraq in 2004, demonstrates in addition that his personal character and bigoted attitudes make him unacceptable to be our President.”
“To his credit, Mitt Romney, who was hosted twice at Scott’s home for fundraisers in the last election cycle, had this to say on the subject: ‘Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University.’ I now call on Scott to follow Mitt Romney’s lead,” Blankley continued.
