MSNBC highlights Tong’s candidacy

|

State Rep. William Tong’s, D-Stamford campaign for his party’s U.S. Senate nomination is promoting the candidate’s recent appearance on MSNBC.

It’s always interesting to see the national media focus on a Connecticut politician other than Sen. Joseph Lieberman, the “independent Democrat” from Stamford that Tong and others are vying to replace.

The segment focuses heavily on Tong’s oft-told story on the campaign trail of working in his family’s Chinese restaurant. The reporter notes Tong’s rise “from the noodle house to the state house” and then asks, “Aren’t you playing to stereotypes, though?”
