The first debate in a long series between Jim Himes and Chris Shays turned into a bit of a donnybrook (I so rarely get to use that word). With accusations about campaign tactics flying back and forth. Ken Dixon of the Post, and Mark Pazniokas of the Courant each had their takes on the day's events. Today, they're playing a doubleheader, with a second debate scheduled - then on Thursday night at 7pm, you can join us for coverage on CPTV and WNPR as they debate again at Fairfield University. We were down there last week to talk to Himes and take your calls, next Wednesday is your chance to talk to Shays. Unfortunately, his schedule has him in DC, but we'll be broadcasting from the studios at Capitol News Connection.
