You get the picture?

Lt. Gov. Democratic candidate Mary Glassman took the gloves off and had this to say about Rell's lack of concern (via press release).
"With less than two months away from Election Day, voters are still waiting for to hear from the Governor about how she will address the critical issues facing Connecticut 's families," said Mary Glassman - Democratic nominee for Lt. Gov.

"Not only is the Governor silent when it comes to energy and health care concerns, but voters have no place to go to get information on her positions on other issues. Incredibly, her campaign website provides only a blank issues page."


"I am proud that since the campaign season began Mayor DeStefano and I have been talking about important issues facing the citizens of Connecticut - stagnant job growth, lack of affordable and adequate health care and stronger support for education from preschool to higher education," said Glassman. "John and I challenge the Governor to run a campaign of ideas and to lay out a vision for Connecticut . Voters deserve nothing less."
I ask again, why should Jodi Rell be re-elected and when will the media stop the love-fest with the governor and start asking her some real questons regarding the issues that voters are concerned about?
