Campaign trail getting hotter

The campaign trail is getting hotter.
In recent days, Republican challengers have turned up the heat on Democratic incumbents they said are out of touch and big spenders.
One searing website established to try to singe U.S. Rep. John Larson, an East Hartford Democrat whose 1st District includes Bristol, lays out the argument succinctly.
A sign saying “Hey Big Spender” points to Larson’s face atop a pile of cash with the advice that he “spend a little less time spending money, And a little more time with the people you represent.”
The website is sponsored by Ann Brickley, a Wethersfield businesswoman who’s angling to take down Larson in the November 2 general election.
“Vote against reckless government spending,” Brickley’s site insists as it urges voters to turn to her instead of handing Larson a seventh term.
Larson’s campaign, not surprisingly, is cool to the idea. Click here for full story.

Ann, good message!

Maybe Larson should spend more time reading the bills he votes for.
