Despite some well-funded Republican opponents, Connecticut voters have returned all Democratic incumbents to the House of Representatives.
More than $11 million has been poured into Connecticut’s congressional races. Just days from the election, explore our searchable database of who is giving to the candidates and how much they are donating. Spoiler: One part of the state far outweighs the rest.
Washington – In the last days of his race against Republican Dan Debicella, Rep. Jim Himes, D-4th District, has dipped into his campaign war fund to donate $203,223 to the Democratic State Central Committee to help other Democrats in the state.
WASHINGTON – Ebola has made a grim, unexpected appearance in the political arena and helped broaden the gulf between Democrats and Republicans running for Congress in Connecticut.
Washington – Rep. Elizabeth Esty, D-5th District, has raised more campaign money than any member of Connecticut’s congressional delegation, an analysis of the latest reports filed with the Federal Elections Commission show.
Esty raised a little more than $2.5 million as of Sept. 30. Rep. Jim Himes, D-4th District, raised a little less than $2.5 million.
The Democratic and Republican candidates in the race for the 3rd District congressional seat are nearly as far apart in their political views as anyone can be, setting the stage for a lively, if a bit lopsided, campaign.
