Election 2020: A Connecticut Conversation
With both major presidential campaigns seemingly taking the state for granted, does Connecticut matter in the struggle for the White House? In Connecticut's fifth congressional district, the Republican is declaring war on Marxism, while the Democrat is contending with racism. How different are the worldviews of Jahana Hayes and David Sullivan? Change is coming to the state capitol, where three of the four party leaders are NOT running for re-election. How big a difference will that make?
