Whether it is JUUL, Frontier, Purdue, Facebook or Eversource, I am taking on the toughest fights, and I never back down when it comes to protecting Connecticut families.
I forced utilities to pay back over $100 million for their failed response to Isaias. I am leading the nationwide price-fixing case against the generic drug cartel. I am investigating TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook over the threats they pose to our kids. I secured millions of dollars for families and taxpayers on a wide-range of healthcare and consumer fraud issues, from robocalls and student loans to travel disruptions and price-gouging. I’m not done fighting the big health insurers, utilities, and banks over their unaffordable rates and unacceptable service.
I have taken on the entire addiction industry, including Purdue and the Sacklers, to bring $32.5 billion nationwide to fight the opioid epidemic, approximately $400 million to Connecticut alone.
I won’t back down in the face of extremist threats to abortion and our post-Sandy Hook gun laws. I will fight in any court, in any state, anywhere reproductive freedom is challenged, and I will vigorously defend the state’s ability to protect our children from gun violence.
I am grateful and honored to serve as Connecticut’s Attorney General and hope to earn your support for a second term.
