State Rep. Chris Wright, a Bristol Democrat, took note the other day of Republican operative Art Mocabee's potshots at him.
But he shrugged them off.
"Art Mocabee could not be more irrelevant to the people of Bristol and the people of Connecticut if he wanted to be," said the first-term 77th District representative.
Wright said this morning that Mocabee "is a chihuahua who thinks he's a pit bull. He goes around biting ankles and thinks people are afraid of him."
He said that Mocabee "is just somebody who has an overinflated opinion of himself."
Wright said that he never tried to follow Mocabee's Twitter feed -- apparently, a fake Wright Twitter feed concocted by the Republicans is what Mocabee actually noticed -- and wouldn't follow him.
"If I was following Art Mocabee, I'd have to lose elections," Wright said, instead of winning them.
