New U.S. Reps. Joe Courtney and Chris Murphy announce that they'll vote to raise the federal minimum wage as part of the Democrats' ambitious "first 100 hours" agenda.
Murphy was on the radio today with Susan Bysiewicz and Kevin Sullivan (Colin McEnroe lost a bet--I'm not kidding). Bysiewicz has job security for at least four more years, while Sullivan's future is a lot less certain after Lt. Governor-elect Michael Fedele is sworn in on January 3rd. He seemed to think he wasn't done with politics, although he admitted that "politics might be done with me." Sullivan explored a gubernatorial bid this year, but gave up on the idea. I have a hard time seeing a Governor Sullivan in our future.
Speaking of: the inaugural ball is on for January 3rd! You can go--but it'll cost you $150 for a ticket. The invitations expressly forbid any sort of gifts.
What else is going on?
