Blumberg Hall. All are invited and welcome!

Lex, a 3L at the law school, and Derek, a recent graduate, will be discussing their campaigns to unseat entrenched incumbents, issues facing the state, and the experience of running for office as law students. They will also be taking questions from the audience.

Bob, I’m so happy to see this post!!! Lex Paulson is in my district (West Norwalk)! What I am about to say is truly sincere and in no way am I getting paid to say it!!! When I first met him, I was so impressed by how knowledgeable he is on all of the issues. He's someone who is very comfortable in talking to all people of all ages, and you immediately feel his likable nature! Lex is a very well rounded, energetic man who is totally committed to representing ALL of the people in his district and will do a wonderful job if elected. I’m looking forward to helping him get elected! He is very sincere, very articulate and very committed to listening to his constituents. You could tell his life was geared toward making a difference and I know he will use these values in representing the 142 District in our General Assembly!

Thnks Bob!

And Lex is a 3L - typo in the original email. Mea Culpa

Harriet, I'm very pleased that I made you happy. I only posted it because I didn't want Gabe mad at me. LOL!

No, I want to make the blog more of a "Connecticut" blog, and while we're remaining focused on the US Senate, maybe we can help get some local Dems elected. Dave Mooney's in the neighboring town of Stratford, and I'd like to put up a post highlighting his campaign.

These two guys can pass for brothers. I first thought it was two pictures of Lex! We could use a little more diversity here....

Yeah, all lawyers look alike.

Thanks Gabe! Well, Bob, it looks like I'm going to become a Mets fan after all now that the SFGaints lost 20-8 to the Rockies last night (damn that Colorado air!!)

Welcome! There's plenty of room on the bandwagon. LOL
