President Donald Trump has given his “total endorsement” to Connecticut’s Republican candidate for governor, Bob Stefanowski.
Stefanowski is a political outsider. He used to run a payday lending company and is a former GE executive.
Trump tweeted his support Wednesday morning.
It is about time that Connecticut had a real and talented Governor. Bob Stefanowski is the person needed to do the job. Tough on crime, Bob is also a big cutter of Taxes. He will win in November and make a Great Governor, a major difference maker. Bob has my total Endorsement!

Trump has butted heads with current Democratic governor Dannel Malloy over immigration.
Stefanowski’s Democratic challenger Ned Lamont replied to the tweet with a taunt:

Stefanowski hasn’t voted in 16 years, but he says he supports Trump.
