Dear Friends,

First, a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this campaign, whether you were a volunteer, supporter or voter, all of you cared enough to come out and participate in our democratic process and affirm its vitality.

Friends,

The hit pieces flying around the past few weeks are really ticking me off.  That includes ALL of them, even those hitting my opponents.  Our local newspapers have characterized the hits on saying things like "Anti-Dodd mailer falls shy of the truth" and "the charges against Dodd play with the truth."

That's corrosive and is weakening people's faith in our system, something we don't spend much time talking about these days.
