Even Rep. Joe Aresimowicz (D – Berlin, Southington)—who is running against FIC Action Committee-endorsed candidate Ed Pocock—is backing away from his longstanding ties with Love Makes a Family. In a “Meet the Candidates” forum at St. Dominic Church that I attended on Wednesday night, each candidate was asked point blank if he would vote to legalize same-sex “marriage.” Here are Aresimowicz’s exact words in response:

“That would not be something I would support.”

Rep. John “Corky” Mazurek (D – Wolcott, Southington) went Aresimowicz one better, describing his vote against civil unions as the “easiest” he’s ever cast and noting that his constituent correspondence “by a factor of 30 or 40” urged him to vote against it.

Pro-family Senate candidate Eric Thompson (R – East Hartford, East Windsor, Ellington, South Windsor) is also taking the fight to his pro same-sex unions opponent:

“There has been an unwarranted attack on the family,” Thompson said. “I think certain laws such as civil unions are attributed to this. We’ve devalued marriage and the family.”
