It will take a top-down election next year to know for sure but Connecticut voters may be tiring of Leftist Democrat policies that are destroying the state. CT is one of many 'blue states' that are losing population annually as citizens flee for freedom elsewhere and take their wealth with them.
On of the original English colonies, Connecticut has a rich history of fighting global tyranny. However, the 'Nutmeg State' is now known as run from the top down by card carrying members of the Communist Party.
Socialist policies have destroyed CT's natural beauty as well as its business climate, with perennial budgets in the red and rampant corruption in its Marxist-run cities.

“What this means is that the Democrats are just completely out of the mainstream where the people of Connecticut are,” said Ben Proto, the Republican state chairman. “They’ve completely misunderstood the electorate.”
“At this point, regardless of who wins in Stamford, the Democrats are in trouble in Stamford. They should have won that race running away," reported The Stamford Advocate.
All in all the GOP is now running more than 20 towns across the state that Democrats ran yesterday, a good night for conservatives.
