In The Fundraising Race, It Is DeLauro By A Landslide

Use the dropdown menu in the article below to see the Connecticut donations made to Democrat Rosa DeLauro and Republican Wayne Winsley in the 3rd Congressional District Race. Search by candidate, town or amount.

Rosa DeLauro, the Democratic incumbent for the 3rd Congressional District, has raised 35 times the money that her Republican opponent Wayne Winsley has collected.

A large portion of DeLauro's donations came out from outside Connecticut, however, while Winsley's is entirely from Connecticut residents.

In North Haven, Winsley has received no financial support. DeLauro has received $4,300 from North Haven residents, including just over $2,000 from Andrew F. Anastasio Jr., the owner of restaurant.

DeLauro's reporting to the Federal Election Commission is for money raised between Jan. 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012. Winsley's fundraising went from Sept. 9, 2011 through June 30, 2012.

That's what we call "BUYING DEMOCRACY!" Rosa is the incumbent with a horrible history of hundreds of billions in corporate subsidies already handed out to the richest people in the world, in exchange for what? 35 times more donations than her challenger! The super-elites have picked THEIR winner. And let's remember who THEIR candidate is: Rosa is an incumbent for the last 22 years. That means, she's in office during the time our great nation was gutted and left for dead by the global banking cartel and corporate infiltrators. During all that time, Rosa worked hand-in-hand with them, doling out hundreds of billions in corporate subsidies in exchange for campaign donations. And do the people actually want to reward her for that? Probably not. But they are blinded by her propaganda and name recognition. The first step to solving a problem is to recognize there is a problem, and WE have a problem called incumbents. Solution? No more incumbents! No more rewards! Rosa needs to be defeated! Throw out Rosa! Elect someone new! Let's give Winsley a chance! and lets hope the rest of America sees sense and throws out their incumbents as well!
