Republican Dan Debicella, who is challenging Connecticut Congressman Jim Himes in the upcoming election, has reached the highest level of the national GOP’s so-called “Young Guns” program.

Of the five members of Connecticut’s Congressional delegation, Representative Jim Himes has raised the most money so far in this year’s election cycle. Representative Rosa DeLauro has raised the least. That's according to Open Secrets, a website that tracks money in politics.

Organizations running early childhood education programs for low-income kids in Stamford and Bridgeport have won millions of dollars in federal grants to continue their programs.

Two members of Connecticut’s congressional delegation are among the co-sponsors of a bill that would create a federal so-called “green bank” to support clean energy infrastructure projects.  The legislation is modeled on a Connecticut program.
