- First came news of his embarrassing fund raising numbers.
- Second, came the ass-kicking he received from Murphy at their first debate (where Danbury's native son couldn't seem to explain to the members of the Waterbury Chamber of Commerce how he would tackle ANY issue facing Americans if elected to Congress).
- Third, came the now famous "nail in the coffin" opinion from just about everyone who paid two seconds to Cappiello's laughable campaign.
- Fourth came the bi-partisan Cook Report also laughing at Cappiello and calling the race clearly for Murphy.
Now the trickle of endorsements are starting to make their way into the press and as Esquire states, the decision on their pick was a no-brainer.
David Cappiello (R)
Chris Murphy (D)
Murphy broke Republican Nancy Johnson's Big Pharma--funded chokehold on the district in 2006. His April 2008 "Blackwater Bill" is an even bigger victory for proponents of open government. It forces major government contractors--"virtually subsidiaries of the United States government," in Murphy's words--to disclose their leaders' names and salaries.
Esquire endorses: Murphy
