Jul 17, 2019

Connecticut's five U.S. Representatives stood with their Democratic colleagues and four Republicans Tuesday in rebuking President Donald Trump for his Twitter attacks against a group of minority congresswomen who have become known as "The Squad."

Here in Connecticut, Gov. Ned Lamont is dangling a new deal before state lawmakers to draw them back to Hartford this year to vote on a highway toll plan. Will they bite?

We also look into the Lamont administration's sudden change of course when it comes to picking the state's next education commissioner.
