Rosa DeLauro (D): DeLauro spoke out against presidential candidate Mitt Romney's running mate Paul Ryan, reports The Daily Beast. "The Ryan budget does not address debt nor fiscal responsibility. What it does is take care of the very wealthy at the risk of the middle class and people who are poor. That is contrary to Catholic teaching," she said.
Wayne Winsley (R): Winsley will attend the Candidate Forum in Hamden, according to his Facebook page.
