Realtors for Connecticut PAC was formed and is run directly by the Connecticut Association of Realtors, which contributed all of its $604,420 in income. Last week the group endorsed Stefanowski, who will likely be the benefactor of most of that money in the coming days. The National Association of Realtors Fund has also spent $126,202.October 23rd, 2018
While some voters on the right will never be comfortable with Rep. Joe Courtney’s Democratic affiliation, it is hard to argue that he has not been getting the job done for his Second Congressional District, which encompasses most of the eastern half of Connecticut.
Since entering office in 2006 during the closing years of the George W. Bush administration, Courtney has pushed the case to ramp up submarine construction. He has had much success. Electric Boat in Groton is now working on a two submarines per year construction schedule. While a proposal to build three Virginia-class attack submarines in 2022 and 2023 suffered a procedural setback this year, Courtney is undaunted and plans to renew his arguments for expedited construction if re-elected.October 22nd, 2018
