From The Hartford Courant
It seems, there will be an official welcoming home party for our nutmeg Don Quixote, Chris Dodd, on Saturday. This from Nancy Dinardo, chairman of the state Democratic committee:
As many of you may have heard, Senator Dodd has decided, after a hard-fought campaign that will be remembered for its professionalism, compassion and insightfulness, to withdraw from the race for the Democratic nomination for the 2008 Presidential election. Although Senator Dodd did not achieve the results in Iowa for which he had hoped, we all remain extremely proud of his tireless efforts to address the issues that are important to every citizen of Connecticut and of this great country. Senator Dodd was a vital part of the discussion on issues such as ending our involvement in the Iraq civil war, restoring our security, reversing the effects of global warming, and ensuring that all Americans have access to affordable quality health care. Fortunately for us, Senator Dodd will continue to fight for us on these issues in the United States Senate.
Please join me, along with Senator Dodd's family and his many friends and supporters, for a very special event to welcome the Senator home and to thank him as he returns from his Presidential campaign.
