As Connecticut’s speaker of the House, Chris rejected a Republican “deal” to cut taxes on the rich and gut social services. Instead, he barnstormed the state showing how Republican cuts would hurt communities — and he won! Republicans caved! Chris is also a national leader for public financing — getting corporate money out of politics. He ran a competitive primary for an open Democratic seat in Connecticut’s 5th district.
We need that fighting spirit in Congress — and it helped Chris earn our endorsement for 2012. Chris ran for an open seat vacated by Democrat Chris Murphy.
