Nearly every day, Connecticut Attorney General William Tong announces another action by his office on behalf of residents.

William Tong

One day he’s fighting for energy efficiency standards. The next he’s joining with other AGs to defend the Voting Rights Act or to restrict the sale of menthol cigarettes.

As an activist attorney general, Tong has established a national profile as a fighter for mainly Democratic causes.

Formerly a Democratic state representative, Tong won a tightly contested three-way primary in 2018 to become Connecticut’s first Asian-American attorney general.

As a legal foe of the Trump administration, Tong joined with other Democrats to push back on many of the president’s policies. Under the Democratic Biden administration, Tong will likely gain more notice from allies in Washington, D.C.
