Log Cabin Republicans proudly endorses Leora Levy for U.S. Senate
“Leora has worked tirelessly for years to keep Republicans motivated in Connecticut while we see the Left’s extremism fail on all fronts. She’s fought for a party that is principled, local, and inclusive – all things the Democrats in our great state are not. We’ve been so impressed by Leora’s ability to gather people around a good cause, stand up for what she believes in, and lead in the time of crisis. We believe Leora will best represent Connecticut’s minority constituents in the U.S. Senate, and look forward to removing our Communist-supporting far Left Senator, Dick Blumenthal, once and for all."
Bradley & Garrett Bewkes, Co-Presidents Log Cabin Republicans of Connecticut
"Leora Levy is a wife, mother, and devoted member of the Republican Party who fled Communist Cuba with her family in 1960 to pursue the American Dream. Leora has served as the RNC Committeewoman for Connecticut since 2016 and has worked to help Republicans get elected all across Connecticut and the country. Leora’s driving principle of “tikkun olam” is admirable and truly exemplifies her good character as someone who wants to give back to her community. Log Cabin Republicans is honored to endorse Leora Levy in her bid to represent Connecticut in the U.S. Senate, knowing that she will fight to secure our southern border, get our economy back on track, restore accountability to our government, and protect our individual liberties."
