News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.


Linda McMahon (R): McMahon reveals new ads promoting her Jobs Plan.

Christopher Shays (R): Shays released a statement in response to President Obama's proposal to raise taxes and called for an end to class warfare.

Whoop-de-do! Just by watching TV I'd know this. If you're going to quote Mr. Shays, I think your lead-in or teaser should have his name. Are new TV ads really the biggest news you have to report?

Obama is now proposing no tax hike for incomes under 250K, but ONLY for one year--and then he would raise their tax rates! Murphy, Himes, DeLauro and the entire lot "representing" CT are contributing to our nation's BANKRUPTCY with their votes! If CT voters were better informed, they would send NO more DEMS to congress, and replace all these "career politicians" with the principled "Limited Government" candidates, such as Wayne Winsley running against DeLauro, and Steve Obsitnik against Himes. http://www.obsitnik.com/ Please check out Winsley's FB, or his website (http://winsleyforcongress.com), and see these impressive videos: **Wayne Winsley Rocks Republican Convention** Hartford, CT May 18, 2012. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWPBo-TE0-4&feature=em-share_video_user Himes is clueless as to the damage he has done in less than 4 years! Here is a one-minute example of his treatment of those who believe in NOT spending $$$ you don't have, and not running up the 5 TRILLIONS more in DEBT Himes voted for: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AQ3pWzMwWs
