Key takeaways: Greetings from the 5th Congressional district of Connecticut, which is currently no doubt gripped in ELECTION FEVER! As no general election postcards have arrived at PCIG Global HQ London, this primary postcard will have to do for this year’s First Quadrennial PCIG Get Out the Vote Special (PCIG-GOTV-S). When first conceived, the Special was envisioned as a non-partisan call to the masses to head down to the Town Hall to pull the levers of democracy, as it were. Clearly, the postcard lobbying efforts the Republican party have blown the bipartisan nature of the PCIG-GOTV-S out of the water; sorry Dems, but you have only your poor snail-mail strategy to blame!
Still, while the national appeal here is to go out and vote with your conscience/wallet/stomach/whatever matters to you, if you do happen to find yourself in Connecticut 5, PCIG’s FIRST EVER OFFICIAL ENDORSEMENT is directed at you! Andrew Roraback (who, spoiler alert, won his primary) has represented NW Connecticut in the State Assembly for longer than I’ve been resident (wow!), and he’s done a very good job, cultivating a reputation as a moderate, party line-crossing legislator who just hates to miss votes. Don’t believe me on that? Believe the local press! On top of all that, he’s clearly pro-postcard. So if you count yourself among the good citizens of Connecticut 5, vote Andrew Roraback for Congress.
If you don’t live in Connecticut 5, remember to get out and vote today. And if you’re a non-citizen, enjoy staying up all night listening to Chris Matthews.
Now back to normally scheduled programming…
