Connecticut GOP Chairman Jerry Labriola Jr. and Democratic Congressman Jim Himes are dueling for Twitter supremacy.
In a Hearst Connecticut Newspapers article about the growing field of would-be challengers to Himes in the 4th Congressional District, which was controlled by the GOP for 40 years before the seat went Democratic during the last two elections, Labriola vowed that there would be a Republican renaissance.
“It’s a Republican seat and we aim to take it back,” Labriola said.
Himes took a dig at Labriola’s comment via Twitter Wednesday.
“Head of CT Repubs called the seat I hold ’a Republican seat.’ Sorry, Jerry, belongs to all my many constituents, not me or you,” Himes wrote.
Determined to get the last word, here’s the latest salvo from Labriola.
