Whip Steve Scalise Visits Glastonbury
On Wednesday, November 2nd Congressman Steve Scalise of Louisiana, Minority Whip, was hosted by local Republicans at a fundraiser. To the surprise of the attendees, he was joined by several Congressmen and women from across the country: Rep. Lisa McClain (MI), Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (PA), Rep. Jenniffer Gonzalez-Colon (PR), Rep. Jake Ellzey (TX), and candidate Harriet Hageman (WY). Co-Chair of the Republican National Committee, Tommy Hicks, was also present, and shared opening remarks with CT GOP Chair Ben Proto.
The lunch event at Red Fox Prime Steakhouse was packed with over 70 local Republicans including many candidates, who enjoyed brief remarks by all the Representatives present. These relative newcomers to Congress shared similar experiences in their journeys — tough battles but the voters came through, bringing some surprising Republican wins and that momentum is continuing to build.
