Bysiewicz “not arrogant enough” to think convention vote matters more

|

Responding to U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy’s comments today’s Democratic Convention will send her a strong message to, essentially, drop her bid for U.S. Senate and endorse his, Susan Bysiewicz said: “I am not arrogant enough to believe a tiny percentage of the electorate would make a better decision than the Democratic voters of this state.”

Ex-Secretary of the State Bysiewicz is expected to receive the 15 percent of today’s delegate vote necessary to mount a primary against Murphy in August to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman.
