Rosa DeLauro supports Lamont, DeStefano

Now, that's a true Democrat. Hat off to her.

From DeLauro press release:

Congresswoman Rosa L. DeLauro (Conn.-3) issued the following statement after the results of Connecticut's Democratic primary were announced.

Senate Race

"Joe Lieberman is a very close friend of our family and we are sorry Connecticut Democrats did not support him. He is a person of integrity who has fought so many good fights for people. I am proud to have worked side-by-side with him in this primary.
"Connecticut Democrats have selected Ned Lamont. I will be supporting and working for his election in November."
Governor's Race

"John DeStefano has the energy, the drive and determination to be Connecticut's governor. I congratulate him on winning the Democratic primary and look forward to continuing to support him and to working for his election in November."
This is a tough time for Lieberman and his supporters. As I stated on several times before, this eleciton was about the future of the Democratic Party and unity is the key. I said I would support Joe Lieberman is he won the primary because in the end, what matters most is the Democratic Party and the importance of staying united during these critical times.

I only hope more Democrats who supported Lieberman would follow suit. I'll proudly add her to "the simple question" list because someone like her to throw her support behind Lamont (although she's good friends of Joe Lieberman) speaks volumes about her dedication to the Democratic Party.
