Big Names Show Support for Candidates as Election Day Draws Near on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review

 

Hartford, CT – Starting at 7 p.m. Friday, Connecticut Network viewers will recap an eventful week where political giants continued to show support for local candidates on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review.

 

With just days remaining until Election Night, Governor Dannel Malloy (D) and his Republican challenger Tom Foley welcomed some big names to the Nutmeg State in order to build up last minute support. The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, made an appearance at a Connecticut Democratic Party Election Rally in New Haven on Thursday, along with Alejandro Garcia-Padilla, the Governor of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. On the Republican side, Tom Foley and his running mate Heather Somers, the GOP candidate for Lieutenant Governor, invited New Jersey Governor and rumored 2016 presidential candidate Chris Christie for the fourth time this election cycle. A new Quinnipiac Poll that was released on Wednesday showed that the race for Governor is closer than ever.

 

Outside of Campaign 2014, the Criminal Justice Policy Advisory Commission held a meeting where the state's gun laws, in relation to seizure policy and mental illness risk factors, were the basis of discussion. Capitol Report will also provide an overview of a panel of experts that have been brought together to study Connecticut's tax structure. The panel began their work this week by gathering input from invited guests which will act as a starting point for their work ahead.

 

Following Capitol Report, Connecticut Network viewers should stay tuned for the CT-N Campaign 2014 Debate Marathon which will begin immediately after Capitol Report and last until the polls open on Election Day. CT-N will be rebroadcasting every debate and editorial board interview from all of the Connecticut races, allowing citizens to catch up on everything and everyone from Campaign 2014.

 

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.

 

All episodes of Capitol Report are available online, in keeping with the network's seamless integration of telecast and interactive content.  Visit www.ct-n.com/CR for OnDemand viewing, annotated with synopses and links to related gavel-to-gavel coverage. 

 

CT-N is available full-time for Frontier Communications U-Verse customers on channel 83 and on expanded basic cable statewide. Visit ct-n.com to find the channel location for the network in your community or to watch online. All Connecticut Network programming is closed captioned for the hearing impaired.
