State Sen. Tom Colapietro, a Bristol Democrat, said that attacking him for allegedly being "anti-family" is ridiculous.
"I think they're stooping to a new low," said Colapietro, who is seeking reelection to the 31st District seat he's held since 1992.
The Family Institute of Connecticut's political action committee, which accused the senator of voting against families, is "anti-gay, anti-abortion," Colapietro said.
In fact, he said, "They're anti-human being."
Colapietro, who is locked in a tight race with Republican challenger Jason Welch, said he has a family so the attack doesn't even make sense.
He said his critics are waging "a win-at-all-costs type of campaign" that depends on badmouthing him.
But the senator said he's not worried.
"The people will decide" next week, he said.
