Media were kept a good distance away from tonight’s fundraiser for senate candidate Dick Blumenthal headlined by President Obama. Reporters and photographers were kept blocks away from the Stamford Marriott, according to WFSB reporter Susan Raff.
“This was very different from the last time the President came to campaign for a senate candidate,” Raff explained, saying the October event with Senator Chris Dodd was much more accessible. “All of the television stations and reporters were allowed into the room where Dodd and Obama appeared. Tonight only one pool camera was allowed and no local cameras were allowed anywhere near the President or the hotel. We were not allowed to see who was entering the fundraiser,” Raff said.
