This November there will be likely be three candidates on the ballot for the U.S. Senate seat held by Senator Chris Dodd. Could this be the lineup of the Republican, Democrat and independent we will be choosing from this fall? Maybe…but this trio will be representing the Senate race this Monday at the Hartford Stage.
Peter Schiff could emerge as the Republican nominee if Rob Simmons and Linda McMahon continue to damage each other so badly, that the GOP decides to turn to someone who still has all limbs intact. Richard Blumenthal is the front runner for the Democrats, and John Mertens is running as an independent.
All three will meet voters this Monday in a ……fashion show. Yes, the annual Capital Catwalk benefits Dress for Success Hartford, an organization that helps women prepare to enter the working world. The show also features local celebrities and personalities modeling the latest fashions from local stores and boutiques. There is also great food from local restaurants.
Politicians like it because it gives them a chance to show a different side to voters, and it benefits a great cause. Another perk is free media coverage!
All of the Senate candidates were invited to be models this year and we are happy to have the above trio helping us raise money for charity. If you would like tickets e-mail Dress for Success at email@example.com
Kara and I are emceeing the event. We’ll see you there.
