US Senator Bars Press From Speech at Connecticut GOP Dinner


“For decades, the annual Prescott Bush Awards dinner has marked the marquee event for Connecticut Republicans as leaders brought in nationally known speakers to address the party faithful.

“But on Thursday night, reporters were prevented from covering the keynote address by first-term U.S. Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana — breaking a decades-long tradition of press access for major national figures like John McCain, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, Bob Dole, and Jack Kemp.”
