It’s Already Name-Calling Season in Connecticut’s 2010 Senate Race

Not that anyone needed proof that it’s never too early for campaigns to step off the high road, but here’s some more. Today’s example comes from Connecticut, where positioning for the 2010 Senate race is well underway.

On Thursday the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee released a web video attacking former Republican Rep. Rob Simmons, who announced last month that he will run to unseat five-term incumbent Democrat Christopher J. Dodd. The add zeroes in on a March 31 Simmons fundraiser that was hosted by several lobbyists.

“Rob Simmons: A special interest Congressman before, a special interest candidate now,” the video concludes.
