Here is Renee's weekly interview with Senator Richard Blumenthal.
This week, Sen. Blumenthal shares his hope for Connecticut and all Americans. He also spells out the law when it comes to counting votes and shares that EVERY vote should be counted regardless of your party. We discuss safety at the polls and most importantly a reminder to VOTE!
