RIDGEFIELD, C.T. — Aimee Berger-Girvalo’s campaign for State Representative in the 111th district was named to the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee’s (DLCC) list of must-watch races. The DLCC selects critical races with strong candidates from across the country to highlight on its Spotlight Races page in an effort to raise awareness and resources for critical races like Berger-Girvalo’s.
“We’re thrilled to announce a new slate of outstanding Spotlight Race candidates as we head into the 2020 election,” said DLCC President Jessica Post. “We are proud to stand with Aimee Berger-Girvalo and include her in our growing list of amazing candidates stepping up to run and make a difference in their communities. Since Trump was elected, the DLCC and state Democrats have flipped more than 430 state legislative seats from red to blue, elected strong candidates from all across the country, and put ten more legislative chambers under Democratic leadership. The DLCC is fired up and ready to win more seats like Connecticut’s 111th throughout the year and in November.”
“This is the most important election of our lifetime and Connecticut voters know how much is on the line. From supporting our small businesses through this crisis to ensuring access to affordable, high quality healthcare to putting an end to the hateful and divisive policies of Trump and the GOP, our values are on the ballot this November,” said Berger-Girvalo. “I’m excited to have the DLCC’s support of my campaign and ready to keep fighting for a better future for the working families of Connecticut.”
