New Britain mayor Erin Stewart has announced that she has raised enough money in her bid for Lieutenant Governor to qualify for public campaign financing. 

Stewart says her campaign has raised over $30,000 in qualifying contributions. 

The New Britain mayor began her campaign for Lieutenant Governor in mid-May after dropping out of the race for governor. 

“In just two short months, in the dog-days of summer, we have raised more than $80,000,” Stewart said.  No other candidate has done what we’ve done.” 

The Republican Primary is set for August 14.
