Saturday was the Democratic State Convention in New Britain. I had family events to attend to and couldn’t attend. However, Christine Stuart has this report up on CT NewsJunkie.
Tonight will be the Democratic Congressional Seat conventions. I haven’t heard details about the conventions in the first and third congressional districts. It is clear who the nominees will be and the conventions are likely to be about as exciting as the State Convention was.
Over in the Fifth Congressional District, Chris Murphy’s convention is supposed to start this evening at 6:30 PM at Crosby High School, 300 Pierpont Road, Waterbury. In the Second Congressional District, Joe Courtney’s nominating convention will take place at UCONN Storrs Campus Rome Commons Ballroom, starting at 7 PM.
While I’ve received more emails about Courtney’s convention than I have of any of the other incumbents, the most buzz right now is about the Fourth Congressional District Convention, where Jim Himes is expected to receive the nomination. It is taking place at the Cesar Batalla School, 606 Howard Ave, in Bridgeport, also starting at 7 PM.
Since I’m driving to Virginia tomorrow, I’ll probably miss these conventions. However, there are plenty of other great conventions coming up. Later, I’ll post information about some of the State Senate Conventions that will happen next week.
