Connecticut's 2nd District provided the closest house race in the nation in 2006 - so what's in store for this November?
The win by Joe Courtney over incumbent Rob Simmons follows a pattern of tight elections in Connecticut's biggest geographic district, and one of it's most diverse. The 2nd district includes the state's largest agricultural area, most of it's military/industrial infrastructure, a large state university, and two of the largest casinos in the world. Cities like Norwich are rapidly changing, with an influx of immigrants from all over the world.
Republican Sean Sullivan is the latest to get into this unusual political ring. The Navy veteran retired in 2006 as the Base Commanding Officer in Groton. He's now a lawyer in Norwich - and is running against the freshman Courtney for his seat.
Like we did in 2006, we're giving the incumbents of the state's five districts, and their challengers, time to answer your questions and outline their visions for their districts, and the nation.
