William Tong is running for Attorney General, because Connecticut needs a fighter who will stand up for all of us.


About William

For more than a decade in public service, William Tong has taken on powerful forces and beaten them.  As the House Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, William has overall responsibility for Connecticut’s legal system. In that role, William took on the National Rifle Association and won, protecting victims of domestic violence by taking guns away from their abusers.  He took on the big banks and overhauled our state’s foreclosure laws to help Connecticut families stay in their homes during the financial crisis.  He took on a system of mass incarceration to give thousands who made mistakes a second chance to succeed and he reformed an unjust bail system.  He took on right-wing extremists and helped to pass historic, first-in-the-nation civil rights laws, including laws to protect the LGBTQ community. William took on these fights alongside Connecticut’s families in the name of fairness, justice, and because each was the right thing to do.
