(Chris Shays defends failed Bush economic policies, Bridgeport Debate, 10/14)
(Jim Himes' Opening Statement at Bridgeport Debate, 10/14)
Just got back to Orange to Blue candidate Jim Himes' HQ from this morning's first CT-04 debate in Bridgeport, CT which focused on health care. Congressman Shays was defensive for the entirety of the debate - defending his positions against allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices, his procedural vote against S-CHIP, and his support of the disastrous Bush economic policies.
Over 300 people gathered last night at Mt. Aery Baptist Church in Bridgeport, CT to share a meal and experience an historic night together. Minutes before Barack Obama accepted the nomination of the Democratic Party for Presdient, Orange-to-Blue candidate Jim Himes addressed the assembled crowd about this campaign and the need to take our country back.
