    Dems Want Keno
    I was listening to John Dankosky's “The Wheelhouse” on Connecticut Public Radio the other day. They were talking about the fact that keno is still in the state budget as a way to raise revenue. The guests couldn’t quite place...

    Like Political Entertainment? Sign The Petition
    This could be a very entertaining summer, if you promise to do this: Any time anybody running for anything approaches you with a petition to get on the ballot, you must — after verifying that the person is neither a white supremacist nor a man-boy...

    GOP Claims Malloy 'Raided' Transportation Fund Don't Add Up
    HARTFORD — For weeks, Republican gubernatorial hopeful John McKinney has scolded Gov. Dannel P. Malloy for having "raided nearly $190 million" from a major transportation fund to shore up holes in the state budget. In public campaign events,...

    Walker For Lt. Gov. On Republican Ticket
    If you harbor the suspicion that state government could run more efficiently and less expensively, you might want to call in a no-nonsense accountant with a green eyeshade to poke around the bureaucratic labyrinth. Someone like David Walker. Mr....
