About Ned Lamont

Read Press Release

In 2012, Connecticut witnessed one of the most horrific mass shootings in American history when 20 children and six staff members were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown. In the years since, the state has served as an example to the nation by passing several life-saving gun safety measures. There is more work to do however, especially when it comes to preventing gun violence in underserved urban neighborhoods. Ned Lamont understands this need and will fight to expand funding for Project Longevity, a proven community-based violence intervention program. A principled father, businessman, and public servant, Ned will ensure that Connecticut continues to lead the nation when it comes to saving lives from gun violence.

Giffords is proud to endorse Ned Lamont for Governor of Connecticut in 2018.
