Meet Jim Himes

(crosspost from My Left Nutmeg)
Yesterday, I attended the The Southern Fairfield County Young Dems BBQ and caught up the man who's looking to give the shameless rubber stamp phony Chris Shays his pink slip in 2008, 4th CD candidate Jim Himes.

For those who don't know, recently, Himes raised eyebrows with his impressive fund raising figures for the second quarter and energized the crowd of over 100 who withstood the rain while Himes delivered his vision of change in the way things are done in Washington.

It kind of reminded me of a certain Democrat who challenged another of President Bush's rubber-stampers not so long ago...

I'll post my full video report on the Young Democrats event, as well as more coverage of Himes, later this week.
