“Conservative Chat” – a half-hour political interview show brought to the public from the Barkhamsted Republican Town Committee for twelve years, and has been hosted by Juliana Simone for eleven, airs in six local district towns, Thursdays at 7PM, on Charter cable channel 191, and is uplinked online the following week of the original broadcast, at http://www.ctv13.net
This new episode features U.S. Senate candidate Dan Carter (R-CT) who is challenging former Attorney General and one-term Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) this November. Carter has also served three terms as a State Representative in the CT General Assembly for the 2nd district.
Representative Carter and Simone discuss his democrat opponent Senator Richard Blumenthal and his campaign’s latest ad that shows him as pro-defense, his voting record during his first term, his voting yes to the Iran deal, his joining Connecticut’s federal democrat delegation on stricter gun laws, his tendency to stretch the truth, his independence in the D.C. Assembly which focuses more on trivial things than important issues, and the upcoming debate Dick will have with Dan on “Face the State” at this time, on Sunday, October 23rd.
Carter also discusses his goals if elected, his military record as a Major in the Air Force, and what committees he would like to serve on with his well-rounded background which would make him an effective U.S. Senator on day one.
