Candidates Blast Message Straight To Voters Via Social Media

Persuading voters to polls requires every possible appeal. In Bridgeport, and most other places, this is the new way of doing things, candidates behind a camera phone–or in this case State Rep. Chris Rosario–blasting out a get-out-the-vote message this weekend via Facebook a few weeks from the Nov. 6 general election. Rosario, in video above, provides the voice-over filming City Clerk Lydia Martinez, and City Council members Alfredo Castillo, Aidee Nieves and Maria Zambrano Viggiano for a top-of-ticket appeal.

Then this video above featuring State Rep. Ezequiel Santiago, the irrepressible East Side Democratic District Leader Wanda Geter Pataky, Rosario and State Senate candidate Dennis Bradley who hosted a meeting of the Connecticut Hispanic Democratic Caucus that included Susan Bysiewicz, Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor.

And Rosario, in video above, fronting the camera with a representative of the Office of the Connecticut Secretary of State who explains how former offenders may vote:

  1. Dennis just lost a $95,000 grant due in part to utilizing his law firm to supplement his campaign. He is facing a significant campaign fine due in part to this illegal activity, yet here he is hosting a political event at his law firm.

    Hmmm…

    No

    1. There are a lot of people who are really pissed off at Dennis Bradley because now they won’t get paid for the work that they have already done for Bradley and for the next two weeks they will not get paid anything so will they get out there and work for free? Hell no.

  2. Politics has become very tribal. It’s not about public service anymore, not even about right or wrong. It’s about winning no matter what the cost. Brett Kavanaugh is unfit to serve as a probate judge let alone sit on a federal court. It didn’t matter to Mitch McConnell and the other old boys in the GOP. They just wanted to win. Who cares if he’s an abusive drunk?

    Now Trump is blaming the caravan headed toward San Ysidro, California, as the fault of the Democrats. When in doubt blame the Democrats. He’s threatening to call out the military to shoot them just as Richard Nixon ordered the National Guard to shoot college students at Kent State.
