With Murphy's record of a 20% attendance, CT would not have a voice in the Senate. We do not need someone there to make a cameo appearance to vote along party lines. We need someone there when the issues are being discussed and debated. Voting on legislation that has not been understood nor studied with the time it deserves is not in our interest.

This section should be expanded to include the CT races.
