Okay, let the games begin. A war of words has erupted between the camps of the great debaters Congressman Christopher Shays and his Democratic opponent Jim Himes. Himes’ boys say Shays doesn’t want to debate. Shays’ camp says Himes is full of crap. “It’s no surprise Chris Shays is hiding from Jim Himes,” said Dana […]
