Red Wave in Failed Economic State Connecticut?

Connecticut is a failed economic basket case a story voters need to hear
Economic growth has fallen since 2009 at .5 percent per year
Unfunded public pension liabilities at the second highest per capita in the nation
The Trump recovery has left the state with its high rate of corporate tax at the economic growth station
Companies from the state in full on flee mode
Seeking lower tax havens for their business abode
Second in the nation in residents voting with their feet and seeking the nearest exit door
While a Blue governor who is retiring continues to the link between higher taxes and no growth ignores
A three way race now neck and neck between a Red former head of GET and UBS
Is running on a pledge to reduce taxes and with zero based budgeting to spending repress
His opponent, a Blue, has the worn-out playbook of identity politics and higher taxes to fund more social projects
Failed ideas and a collapsing economy that the voters should reject
Connecticut borders Massachusetts on its northern border
A state which has lowered taxes to 5.1 % with income, population and tax revenue growth in fine order
The Red candidate is waxing the Blue among Indies by double digits percent
Great chance for a Red to Hartford will be sent.
