Connecticut Dem Says Time For Chris Dodd To Go

Connecticut Dem says time for Dodd to go


As Connecticut voters remain wary of Sen. Chris Dodd, one state Democrat is openly suggesting the five-term senator abandon his re-election bid "for the good of the party."

"Chris has had Obama in for him, Biden in for him, a lot of TV ads and they haven't moved the numbers," former Connecticut Democratic Party Chair Ed Marcus told local television station WFSB. "Rightfully or wrongfully the perception within the voting public in Connecticut is just negative toward Chris."

A recent Quinnipiac poll suggests Dodd faces an 11-point deficit against Rob Simmons, one of several Republicans vying for the party's nomination to face Dodd. The poll also suggests Dodd would loose to Republicans Linda McMahohn and Tom Foley, while he would tie Sam Caligiuri and Peter Schiff.

Despite high-profile visits from President Obama and Vice President Biden in recent months, Dodd's numbers have barely recovered in the year since the Connecticut Democrat first took heat over his involvement in the federal bailout of a string of Wall Street banks.

GOOD! Dodd’s goose is cooked . He is a detriment to freedom, free enterprise, private property, individual responsibility ... and the American way in our CONSTITUTION.

After all the economic damage he has done to us, Dodd needs to be gone. Come on Connecticut voters, put his ass out to pasture.

I know that not all of Connecticut loves him but someone does, so which cities thrive on government kickbacks? Could they be those nearest DC or Montreal? Expect him to be re-elected and rewarded, he's Connecticut's Robin Hood, the only one with more suction is Frank next door.

I read somewhere Dodd had only a few hundred dollars from Connecticutt but Millions from outside the state. This is why we need to repeal the 17th Amendment. Go back to the way the Founding Fathers intended Senators to be chosen, by the State Assemblies. This all goes back to 1913 progressives deal.

Darth, good one.

I agree everyone, this is a chance to get
rid of Dodd and rid of him from politics
for good. I sure hope they do, his being
in office effects all of us.
