And Meanwhile, in the Audience at the Debate…


The candidates at the first Lamont v. Stefanowski gubernatorial debate at the Garde in New London were feisty but dignified. The same cannot be said of a member of the CT General Assembly who was sitting in the crowd. State representative Kevin Skulczyck (R-Griswold/Lisbon/Plainfield) was sitting in the press section and yelled loudly during the debate while others were mostly applauding their candidate. During a commercial break, when a reporter pointed out to him that he was about to become a story unto himself, he went over to two members of the press corps and bellowed that they were “part of the fake news network.”
