Former President Barack Obama announced his endorsement of state Senate candidate Will Haskell ’14 on Twitter on Monday Oct. 1.

“Today, I’m proud to endorse even more Democratic candidates who aren’t just running against something, but for something—to expand opportunity for all of us and to restore dignity, honor, and compassion to public service,” Obama’s post reads. “They deserve your vote.”

Obama also included a photo of democratic candidates from all over the country with Haskell listed under Connecticut.

The voters in my district are ready and eager to fight Donald Trump’s values by restoring the civility, honesty and compassion that you bring to public service,” Haskell responded to Obama’s tweet.

Haskell is a Staples graduate and has been campaigning in the 26th district for the 2018 midterm elections approaching in November.  

According to Haskell’s website, he is “tired of hearing the same empty promises and partisan infighting from Hartford,” which is why he decided to run.
“I think it’s amazing that Haskell was endorsed by Obama,” Lydia Donovan ’19, an intern for Haskell, said. “He works hard and he deserves it.”
