Paul Streitz's Senate campaign is looking to win an upcoming straw poll in Middletown, partly with the help of people from out of state, according to an email message allegedly sent by his campaign.
he straw poll in Middletown will have the candidates speak, the newspapers will cover and the 11 o'clock news will have the story. Our opponent Alan Schlesinger is expected to be there.Strange that he would be bringing people from New Jersey and Massachusetts to a Connecticut straw poll.
The vote is among whoever shows up. So the more people we have concerned about immigration, the more likely we are to win.

If we have a victory, that is the kind of headline we could receive and it would be national news, on to all the internet sites. And send a chill up and down the spines (do they have any) of Senators and House members. If we lose, we have to make excuses.
I know that for some of you it is a good drive, but we expect some people from New Jersy and Massachusetts to be there. This is important.("Straw Poll")
Hopefully the more moderate Schlesinger will draw a decent amount of support. Interesting that he'll be there... I wonder when he'll announce?
