(Hartford, Connecticut) — Connecticut Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo released the following statement:
“I am calling on Toni Boucher, Mark Boughton, Tom Foley, Mark Lauretti and John McKinney to let Connecticut know exactly where they stand on the looming government shutdown that will greatly damage Connecticut’s economy. So I ask the candidates, do you stand with John Boehner and your fellow Republicans in the U.S. House on shutting down the government or do you oppose their irresponsible actions? If you oppose the forced shutdown of the government, will you send a letter to John Boehner’s office asking him to be reasonable and work with Democrats to negotiate a fair compromise that doesn’t shutdown the government and doesn’t eliminate Connecticut jobs?
