U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal made formal tonight what everyone took for granted – he is supporting Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.
“I am proud, really proud to endorse Hillary Rodham Clinton for president of the United States,” he told a crowd of about 60 Hillary supporters at a Ready for Hillary super PAC fundraiser at the Westport home of Ann Sheffer and Bill Scheffler.
Blumenthal acknowledged his announcement would not surprise anyone as he was co-chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 Connecticut presidential campaign effort and was also a Yale Law School classmate of both Hillary and Bill Clinton.
“I believe in her vision,” Blumenthal said, speaking off the cuff. “She has a vision that is very much like the president’s -– very courageous and makes her a champion of causes before their time.”
