READING LIST:

Record-Journal: 5th District GOP candidates largely agree on trade, guns, border security - "The candidates agreed for the most part on immigration reform, with DuPont saying a bipartisan solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, needs to be one that does not 'make a bad situation worse.'"

CT News Junkie: 5th District Campaign Cash Anticipates Competitive Primaries - "Republicans and Democrats have scrambled to gear up for the open seat in the 5th Congressional District since early April when Esty announced that she would not seek re-election after concerns were raised that she had mishandled a sexual harassment complaint filed against her former chief of staff."
