CT has a handful of good guys still. Joe Markley (Southington) is one. Len Suzio was one until he was targeted. Having Meriden and Middletown in his district was a bit much. His loss was within the margin of theft.

A spineless one at that - instead of gathering the Repubs to make a stand together, he sided with the Demoncrats and gave them "bi-partisan cover".
God bless the rock-solid Repubs like Markely and Noujaim.
