This spring candidates from both major political parties are seeking endorsements for state and federal offices. There will be some candidates that don’t deserve their party’s nomination and yet they will run with a nomination by default.
Mr. Blumenthal is seeking the Democratic nomination for the United States Senate and exemplifies a candidate that has served his party with loyalty and commitment. He has consistently supported his party at events across the state, working with his party’s candidates to promote their election. Mr. Blumenthal has been the consummate party patriot proudly parroting the party line and pandering to special interests for party support. He deserves the Democratic Party’s nomination for the U. S. Senate.
The party needs Mr. Blumenthal. The question is, do the people of Connecticut need Mr. Blumenthal? The people of Connecticut need and deserve a Senator that will be a voice of the people, not a parrot for his party. Connecticut doesn’t need a clone of Senator Dodd, playing party politics and pushing personal promotion above the needs of the people of Connecticut.
Sorry Mr. Blumenthal you may deserve the nomination but you don’t deserve our vote. We need a Senator to represent more than your party or your personal ambition.
