It is a sad night here at Bridgeport. As I told WNPR, I don't know if I can even vote for Dan Malloy. Have I voted for politicians I don't respect? Sure. But this one hurts. The turnout was horrible -- and I have to believe that the mud slinging and crap thrown had a lot to do with that. The apolitical people I talked to had had enough, and I don't blame them.
This proves one thing -- that negative campaigning works -- in spades. That's a sorry fact for our state and the people who care about it who will likely hear nothing about a positive vision for Connecticut between now and November.
Congrats to Kevin Lembo -- the challenge being that we could lose an incredibly effective health care advocate
