Connecticut Republicans Score a Big Fish for Their Fancy Dinner

Florida US Sen. Marco Rubio is the keynote speaker for the Connecticut Republican Party’s annual fundraising soirée, the Prescott Bush Dinner. Rubio is considered a serious contender for the Republican Presidential nomination.

Party Chair Jerry Labriola was effusive in his praise. “Senator Rubio’s optimistic and positive vision for America stands in stark contrast to Barack Obama’s six long years of government overreach and policies which have weakened America both militarily and economically,” Labriola said.

When Rubio is at the Crowne Plaza in Stamford June 4th for the dinner, perhaps we can ask him to articulate his views on climate change because in his appearance on Sunday’s “Face the Nation” he seemed to say climate change exists but it’s too far gone for us to anything about it.

For what it’s worth, there is a constitutional right to gay marriage. It’s called the Fourteenth Amendment and it provides that no state shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction “the equal protection of the laws.” And that’s how even this Supreme Court will rule. Count on it.
