A tweet by former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has Connecticut U.S. Rep. Jim Himes in a tither.  Himes retweeted Huckabee’s tweet: “Flight delay from D.C.; missed connections in ATL; miserable travel day.  Pretty sure caused by Putin and those dang Russians!”

Himes added his own tweet: “I grew up during the Cold War.  Never imagined Russian malevolence would be a source of denial, fun and mirth for the @GOP.”

It was the second time in two days, Connecticut’s congressional delegation criticized a tweet from a Republican.  U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy took President-elect Donald Trump to task for misspelling a tweet on Saturday.
