At the request of Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Diane Farrell will deliver the Democratic Response to the President’s radio address on Saturday Oct. 21. Farrell’s recording of the response will be open to the press. Excerpts will be available by 12 noon Oct. 20.
Speaking of the 4th district, Lorraine Gengo of Fairfield County weekly has a great piece about the tone of Farrell and Shays multiple debates.
From the article:
The message isn’t always in the words you hear. The body language in the Chris Shays v. Diane Farrell debates is far more eloquent and telling than all the rhetoric being spouted. Shays, the Republican incumbent with 19 years under his beltway, has the aura of the underdog about him in recent bouts with his Democratic challenger. It’s a weird place for Shays to find himself, given his track record of landslide re-elections up until two years ago, when Farrell first ran against him and lost by only 4 percentage points.
Diane Farrell has a real momentum going.
