WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Republican Governors Association announced a new digital campaign targeting Democrat governors on their anti-jobs, anti-business policies. Over the past week, Democrat governors attempted to mislead voters in interviews with the New York Times and POLITICO claiming their focus is on improving job climates in their states, but as their failed records show, they continue to embrace job-killing policies that put their states at an economic disadvantage and force companies to flee.
Connecticut’s state Senate has two new members. The winner of Tuesday’s special elections to fill vacant senate seats in the 2nd and 32nd Districts were sworn in Friday. The 2nd District was considered a slam-dunk for Democrats and it was, as Rep. Douglas McCrory easily won in the Democratic stranglehold.
The 32nd District was considered a Republican stronghold too, where a Democrat has not been elected to the Senate in more than a century. But Democrats, hoping to regain control of the state Senate, poured outside money – as much as $50,000 by one group – into the race, hoping to stage an upset. After then Rep. Eric Berthel captured the race by nearly 2,000 votes, Democrats nationally and in the state declared a “victory” because the race was so “close.” In an interview on the Talk of Connecticut’s CT On The Hill radio program, Sen. Berthel called the claims “ridiculous.” You can listen to Berthel’s analysis of the race and other issues related to state government by clicking on the link below this story.
