Congressman Himes on “Face the State”


Technical Producer Adam Brooks and Audio Engineer Joel Kosciak

Congressman Jim Himes is our guest this week, along with reporters Mark Pazniokas of the Connecticut Mirror and Brian Lockhart of the Stamford Advocate.    Himes has been named by Republicans as vulnerable and the national party has targeted him for defeat.  

During our taping, Himes admitted he could lose his seat in November.   He’s in a tough position:  the 4th district was held by Republicans for years; he’s a freshman; and the Obama wave he rode into office in 2008 is gone.  

We also asked Himes about health care, President Obama’s spending, the war in Afghanistan, whether he supports Ned Lamont for governor and more.   He also talks about whether he has disappointed the  liberal Democrats who helped elect him. 

This is Himes’ fourth appearance on Face the State since 2008.    He appeared three times during the ’08 campaign.   His opponent never appeared, having turned down all of our invitations.  

Also, we unveil our new Face the State announcer.   That’s Sunday at 11.
