Campaign Pete wants FIC Blog’s readers to remember next Tuesday’s primaries. (FIC Action Committee will have more to say about them soon.) Excerpts from Pete’s comments in another thread:

A bunch of primaries take place in two weeks, on August 12th involving Pro-Marriage candidates, including:

(R) Witkos – Canton, State Senate
(D) Mazurek – Wolcott, State Rep
(R) Noujaim – Waterbury, State Rep
(D) Lydia Martinez – Bridgeport, State Rep

Immediate questions come the mind: is Witkos at risk of possibly losing?

The 17th district Republican primary in Avon-Canton:
Tim LeGeyt vs. Tom Harrison, anyone have information regarding either candidate?

formerly Middletown Pete (I moved)…

I forgot the #1 race on AUG 12: Pro-marriage Marie Lopez Kirkley-Bey, Deputy Speaker of the House

tough primary. Most of the action 8/12 is in the cities, NHaven, Bprt, WTBY, Htford

A large number of far-left Democrat incumbents are facing primary challengers … go figure. It is one of the benefits of living in a liberal state … you can sit back and watch 2 leftists beat up on each other…

the 5th district is the north end of Hartford.

    I spent some time on the campaign trail tonight. This state rep campaign team today was the candidate, candidate’s daughter, and 4 volunteers. Phone calls and leafletting.

    I am under-cover … not trying to broadcast everything. So no details. It is true that the nuts and bolts are tedious. And analyzing the results on Primary night is more interesting … but somebody has to make the phone calls.

    Meanwhile, here’s details of New Haven: Dyson’s seat (retiring). Neither candidate seems like they are interested in the ‘family values’ vote.

    Same thing in the Hartford senate primary … no ‘family values’ candidate:

    Hello Stoppers,
    I hope your’re well and soaking up this nice wheather while possible. I did happen to find a candidate for the U. S. House of Representatives in West Hartford District 1 who is pro-life and is running agaist the self proclaimed Catholic pro-abort, Hon. John Larson-D. His name is Joseph Visconti-R, P.O. Box 270043, Hartford, CT 06127. E-mail:
    Unfortunately District 5 pro-abort’s, Hon. Chris Murphy-D and David Cappiello-R, are nothing much to write home about. Although state Senator David Cappiello says he will vote in favor of Parental Notification and is against Partial Birth Abortion he voted to fund the Healthy Teens enhanced comprehensive health grant for local Board of Education members to apply for, in the Appropriations committee on 04/01 08, for $500,000. The final vote for this obsene bill will be in the next legislature session by the general assembly so please contact your state Rep. and Senator to vote nea.
    The three pro-abort, self proclaimed Catholics running for reelection in the U. S. House of Representatives are, District 1’s Hon. John Larson-D Hartford, District 2’s Hon. Joe Courtney-D Vernon, and District 3’s Hon. Rosa DeLauro-D New Haven.
    District 4’s pro-abort the Hon. Christopher Shays-R is running for reelection as well and his opponent Jim Himes-D Stamford, was a ‘not home’ phone call.

    nothing very good from the Bridgeport results:

    Chico Rivera and Lydia Martinez lost by wide margins.
    Keeley lost, so good riddance.

    Anthony Musto beat Marilyn Moore in the senate primary:
    53% to 47%, 1944 to 1692. Musto opposes same-sex marriage, but he is opposed to parental notification laws.

    Thanks for your good work, CampaignPete. FIC Action Committee just sent an e-mail alert with our analysis of yesterday’s results (you are on our e-mail list, I hope!) and we’ll have a version of it posted here soon.

    You have Musto down as an opponent of same-sex “marriage” and I hope you are right. I thought I read elsewhere that he’s for it.

    At any rate, FICAC will have it all sorted out in time to let the public know who the pro-family candidates are.
