CT Post Picks Rob Russo in 22nd Special Election

With a week to go before the Special Election in the 22nd State Senate race in Bridgeport, Trumbull and Monroe, Republican Rob Russo picked up a big endorsement today by the Connecticut Post.

The Post wrote Sunday:

"The Connecticut Post endorses the candidacy of Robert D. Russo III for the seat. Russo possesses an energy and a modicum of "out-of-the-box" thinking that we believe is better suited to the district and its disparate communities and politics.

A former aide to U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays, R-4, and regional office head for Gov. M. Jodi Rell, Russo possesses a firm and deep knowledge of the major issues in the district and at the state Capitol. He realizes the urgency of building bridges between the urban center and its neighboring suburbs.

We feel Russo is representative of a new breed of politicians that is willing to work across party lines to accomplish common goals and we particularly appreciated the recurring emphasis he's placed on state fiscal prudence during the campaign."
