Democratic President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign today launched a fundraising drive based on comments likely Republican opponent Mitt Romney made last night about turning Obama into a one-termer.

Not sure how many Connecticut residents will be heeding Romney’s call. According to Gallup we’re an Obama state.

Connecticut Republicans recently backed Romney in a straw poll of GOP primary contenders.
