We all know that last year's mid-term elections were the most expensive congressional races ever here in Connecticut - and despite former Congressman Rob Simmons and U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney's combined spending of nearly $6 million (for a job that pays only $165,500 a year), they actually finished last in the money game. They were outspent by the other two contested House races - not to mention that enormous amounts spent on the US Senate race.

I bring this up because Wednesday is the deadline for the candidates - winners and losers - to file their "year-end" financial statements. Those financial reports are not expected to provide any significant new information - just more detail. They could, however, provide some insight into future plans - or at least offer up some solid ground for good, old speculation.
