Upbeat Donovan faces the Democratic party’s music

Can political neophyte Dan Roberti of Kent surf Bill Clinton’s endorsement to an upset today? Can Elizabeth Esty, a one-term state House member from Cheshire, really take advantage of the federal conpspiracy probe that resulted in the indictment of two former top campaign staffers for Speaker of the House Chris Donovan and knock him out of contention for the 5th District congressional primary today? Ten hours until we find out. Yesterday, Donovan was asked what’s at stake today.

“Republicans have made it clear that their goal is the complete destruction of Medicare and Social Security. Connecticut families need someone that they can trust to fight for them, not millionaires and corporate special interests,” Donovan said. “I’m the only candidate in this race with a record of fighting for, and delivering for, middle class families.”
