09/30/11 Team Himes: Tonight Is Crucial


Dear Friends,

Tonight, at midnight, this crucial financial reporting period will end for Jim’s campaign. Republicans nationally and locally will take a look at this district to determine if they can pick up CT-4 in next fall’s elections. The right-wing has been working hard to show that there is no room for moderation and compromise in Congress--we think they are wrong.

Help us show that independent thinking is not dead in Washington.

This week, The New York Times ran a profile of Jim in the Business section highlighting how valuable Jim’s background has proven in Congress. The article said:

Shortly after he beat out the incumbent, Christopher Shays, to win the seat, his expertise landed him a plum assignment on the House Financial Services Committee, where he helped write the House version of the Dodd-Frank Act, the financial regulatory overhaul.

Christopher S. Murphy, a fellow Connecticut Democrat, recalled seeing Mr. Himes giving impromptu economics lessons on the House floor during debates over the contentious bill. “There was always a crowd around Jim,” Mr. Murphy recalled. “He very quickly became a safe harbor for moderate members who wanted to make sure we corrected the abuses of Wall Street without killing the markets.”

We need more representation in Washington like Jim’s, not less. Help us make this filing decisive by clicking HERE and making a contribution before midnight tonight.

Thank you for your support!
Team Himes
