U.S. Rep. DeLauro endorses Mayor Elicker for second term in New Haven

New Haven

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — U.S. Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) is endorsing Democrat Mayor Justin Elicker for reelection in New Haven. She made the announcement Thursday.

“He will never stop working for working families, or for the middle class, or for the vulnerable…Justin Elicker, I believe in the work you do every day for us, especially when no one is looking…Which is why I support him today and every day,” Rep. DeLauro said.

This comes two weeks after 13 unions backed the mayor’s reelection bid.

Elicker’s primary Democratic challenger Karen Dubois-Walton pulled out of the race last week when the city’s Democratic Town Committee unanimously nominated Elicker as their candidate ahead of the Sept. 14 primary election.
