Dodd and the hometown connection...

Speaking of Dodd's presidential bid and the home turf issue (see the last blog posting), the senator isn't getting much support from a key group of Connecticut folks - the trial lawyers. Seem they're sticking with their favorite presidential hopeful, former Sen. and 2004 Democratic Vice Presidential candidate John Edwards. There are two fundraisers planned for Edwards here in Connecticut in the coming months.

One major player in that group, however, won't be in attendance - Congressman Joe Courtney, who four years ago served as Edwards' Connecticut Campaign Chairman. Courtney, who won election to the U.S. House of Representatives last year, is backing fellow Democrat Dodd at this point.
