State Sen. Sam Caligiuri jumped on the bandwagon of Connecticut Republicans making hay of Democratic Sen. Christopher J. Dodd’s low donor support within the state.

Caligiuri, who is running for Dodd’s Senate seat, released a video Tuesday night on his campaign Web site that asks the question, “Who is Funding Chris Dodd’s campaign?”  

That add cites last week’s Connecticut Post story in noting that Dodd’s raised nearly $605,000 from close to 400 out-of-state donors, but only $4,250 from five Connecticut residents in the first three months of 2009.  

“Don’t let special interests, DC insiders and out-of-state cash buy our Senate seat,” the video concludes, ending with a request for supporters to sign up and donate on Caligiuri’s Web site.
