Kate Farrar, Jorge Cabrera, Bobby Gibson, Amy Morrin Bello win primaries as progressive candidates gain ground across the state
Conn. – All Connecticut Working Families Party (CT WFP) endorsed candidates have successfully completed a primary sweep this week. Kate Farrar (HD20), Representative Bobby Gibson (HD15), Amy Morrin Bello (HD28), and Jorge Cabrera (SD17) won their races, demonstrating that voters want leadership that will fight hard for healthcare reform, education equity, immigrant rights, and good jobs that will help working families thrive, not just survive, and leave a better future for their kids.
“We were proud to endorse Bobby, Amy, Kate and Jorge in the primaries this year,” said Carlos Moreno, Connecticut Working Families Party Deputy Director. “They recognize that in order to address racial, economic, and social disparities in our state, we need champions that will put workers over bosses and the people first. They’re the right candidates for the job.”
“Connecticut is facing a health crisis, an economic crisis, and an equity crisis. The coronavirus pandemic has laid bare the glaring, painful inequalities in our state. Amy Morrin Bello, Bobby Gibson, Kate Farrar, and Jorge Cabrera know how urgent it is to address these issues now. These primary results show that Connecticut voters share the same sense of urgency.”
The Connecticut Working Families Party is a grassroots political party that recruits, trains, and elects the next generation of progressive leaders to office. Our endorsement comes with candidate training and strategic campaign support. All candidates are carefully vetted to ensure that they reflect the views and values of Working Families’ members. WFP-endorsed candidates appear on the WFP line on the ballot in the general election.
