The Vice President Stumps for the Governor, Foley Wins the Independent Nom. & Visconti Makes His Way onto the Ballot on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review

 

Hartford, CT – Starting tonight at 7 p.m., Connecticut Network viewers will see Campaign 2014 shift into full gear as CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review recaps a busy week in Connecticut politics. On Wednesday Vice President Joe Biden paid a visit to Goodwin College in East Hartford to attend a roundtable discussion on workforce development with Governor Dannel Malloy. After the event, the Vice President made his way down to Fairfield County to attend Democratic Party fundraisers that helped raise money for Governor Malloy’s re-election campaign.

 

Earlier in the week on Monday, the Governor held a signing ceremony with DEEP Commissioner Robert Klee for the bipartisan Fracking Waste Bill. The new law bans the handling of fracking waste in the state of Connecticut for the next three years. Later that day, news broke that the Governor's Education Commissioner, Stefan Pryor, announced his resignation from the State Department of Education. Pryor, a Yale-educated lawyer, served as the Education Commissioner for three years.

 

In other Campaign 2014 news, the Governor's Republican challenger, Tom Foley, ensured a second party line on this November's ballot by winning the endorsement of Connecticut's Independent Party. By the end of the week however, the two man race for Governor turned to three as it was announced that former West Hartford town council member Joe Visconti secured enough signatures to force his way onto the ballot.

 

Capitol Report: Week in Review summarizes the activity at the State Capitol during the week, using voice over and graphics to combine history, context, and next steps in the process with full-length excerpts from the week's proceedings.  The program premieres on CT-N every Friday night at 7:00 p.m., then rebroadcasts at Noon and 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays, 8:00 p.m. on Sundays, and 6:00 a.m. Monday mornings; check CT-N's online program schedule for additional airtimes.  Each episode runs between 30 and 60 minutes.
