The campaign for governor in Connecticut is now in its final week and a number of national political figures are expected to come to Connecticut to help the candidates close the deal. Last night Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy and his Republican challenger Tom Foley sought votes on opposite sides of state on Monday.
Foley campaigned in southeastern Connecticut with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Christie helped rally Republican Party faithful at a café in Groton.
Incumbent Democratic Congressman Jim Himes of Connecticut’s Fourth District and Republican Challenger Dan Debicella debated in Norwalk Tuesday. The candidates both bragged of their own bipartisanship, while trying to paint each other as partisan extremists.
From his first answer, Debicella sought to establish himself as the alternative to what he called incumbent politicians who put their party above country.
Earlier this month, Catholics celebrated the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Many churches held blessings of the animals, which stems from St. Francis's own love for all Earth's creatures. Yesterday, a Long Island church held a blessing for stuffed animals.
