Tim Herbst’s gubernatorial campaign announced 16 new endorsements Monday.
Herbst, the former first selectman of Trumbull, is one of more than 10 Republicans seeking the party’s nomination to run for governor.
The new endorsements include the Republican chairmen of East Windsor and Tolland as well as 14 other current and former local officials. Herbst’s campaign said he has 65 endorsements to date.
Herbst and the other Republicans are trying to win support of the roughly 1,000 delegates who will vote for the party’s gubernatorial nominee at the Republican state convention in May.
