Third District Race: Courant Backs Rosa DeLauro

Wayne Winsley's confidence that his platform of jobs and business growth being heard is among today's news from the campaign trail in Connecticut.

Third District

Rosa DeLauro (D) received the endorsement of the Hartford Courant. According to the editorial, “Republican control of the House the past two years has put a crimp in her style. Still, she's good at playing defense.”

Wayne Winsley (R):  A blog post on the candidate’s website discusses the campaign so far. “My message of moving people from food stamps to full-time employment and helping businesses small and large to grow and create jobs for more of our neighbors is resonating and We the People are responding,” Winsley wrote.


The latest Quinnipiac Poll showed Chris Murphy with a 49-43 lead over Linda McMahon. Both sides offered their side of the story after the results were released on Wednesday.

Corry Bliss, campaign manager for McMahon, said that Ramussen and Mason-Dixon polling firms found the race to be a dead heat.

“If it weren’t so close, Congressman Murphy might not be lying to the people of Connecticut about his record of voting for higher taxes for the middle class, voting against funding to build submarines in Groton,” Bliss said.

Murphy’s campaign fired off a similar missive to the press.

“After losing four debates and seeing the momentum shift strongly toward Chris, Linda McMahon is now relying completely on stale, desperate, and dishonest political attacks to distract voters from her extreme right-wing positions,” said spokesman Ben Marter. 

First District

In a profile today in the Hartford Courant the newspaper says John Larson (D) and his opponent, John Henry Decker (R), have "stark differences."

Second District

Joseph Courtney (D) is heralding a settlement in a class-action Medicare lawsuit as a major victory for Medicare patients with chronic illnesses.

Fifth District

Elizabeth Esty and Andrew Roraback talked to voters at a forum on Tuesday at Avon. According to Patch, the candidates saw eye-to-eye on social issues. That was not the case with economic issues.

Fourth District

The Nov. 6 election is fast approaching, so Steve Obsitnik and Jim Himes are utilizing different strategies to win the election. According to the Connecticut Mirror, Himes is focused on winning votes in right-leaning Shelton. Obsitnik is working in the cities, which typically vote for Democrats.

Here's why Wayne Winsley already has won Middletown: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phMrLzSSFuM&feature=share&list=PL5wsVsNCEygpfRXWa_4vUw5T3r4qeY1aW [also see part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzxC1jUGLwo&feature=share&list=PL5wsVsNCEygpfRXWa_4vUw5T3r4qeY1aW ]

Chris, no matter how many times you post this nonsense nobody is buying it. The idea that Winsley has "already won Middletown" is just as delusional as the rest of your posts. DeLauro won Middletown by over a 2-1 margin in 2010, and that was against a real candidate. Winsley will be lucky to loose by less than 3-1.

Papers like the New Haven Register and Hartford Courant are dying not because print is out of date, but because fewer people want to plunk down $$ to be told their corrupt-to-the-core incumbents are the only thing saving us from extinction. Now, Denise Buffa's article on Wayne Winsley in the Hartford Courant suggested he suffers from black rage and abuses crack. Clearly the Courant is harping on latent racism to terrorize older white women into voting for Rosa to keep a violent African American out of Congress. Such is the gutter in which the so-called Progressives dwell, content to let fabulously wealthy incumbents like Rosa drive our country into total poverty -- because poverty and suffering means more power for their party elites! Fight racism and bigotry in the media and the ruling party! Down with Rosa DeLauro!
