BIG POLITICAL NAMES LOOK TO SCORE POINTS WITH LABOR TODAY

Dodd, Dean, Blumenthal, Foley, Malloy—they’ll all be there looking to endear themselves and their respective parties to the state AFL-CIO’s 400 members at the group’s political convention held today at the Connecticut Convention Center. According to a report by the Associated Press, Republican US Senate candidate Linda McMahon was also invited but it’s not clear if she will attend.

Former presidential candidate and Vermont Governor Howard Dean is the keynote speaker.
