Who Is Eva Bermudez Zimmerman? A Fresh Face With A History Of Activism

Eva Bermudez Zimmerman jumped into the race for lieutenant governor with little money and a limited political operation.

Two days later, she captured the support of 40 percent of the delegates at the state Democratic convention and earned a place on the Aug. 14 primary ballot.

Bermudez Zimmerman, who is 30 and making her first run for statewide office, came within 10 percentage points of toppling Susan Bysiewicz, the 56-year-old establishment favorite with widespread name recognition, more governing experience and a partnership with Ned Lamont, 64, the party’s endorsed candidate for governor.
