Election Doubleheader: What's It Like To Be A Republican In Connecticut?

Apr 24, 2012

It's Primary Day in Connecticut. So everybody's excited about ... actually ... nobody is excited. Connecticut Republicans do seem energized by last night's Ann Romney speech at the party's Prescott Bush Dinner, and we're using the second half of today's political doubleheader to look at the state of the party and the party in the state.

How are Connecticut Republicans answering the bell in the battle for young voters? What moves can the party make toward racial and ethnic diversity? In other states, we've watched old line moderate Republicans get picked off or squeezed out by Tea Party insurgents. This hasn't happened in Connecticut, due in part to the dearth of Republican office-holders who could get squeezed out. So what's like to be a Republican in Connecticut these days?
