I was just doing some research on this race,Hayes definitely has her hands full with Logan, he is pro choice and he keeps using her voting record against her and tying her to the inflation problem every chance he gets. I believe I said this before, she could really use a visit from Obama

> Logan is pro choice

... as long as he doesn't have to do anything about it. For example: he would vote against any legislation to codify Roe v Wade.

He has other code-word positions, e.g. he "has no interest" in gutting programs such as Social Security. Yeah, sure.

I think he will be a "moderate" to the extent that if such draconian bills come up and the Republican majority is overwhelming enough to pass without his vote, he may be given dispensation by Republican leadership to abstain. But if his vote is needed, it will be there.

I just realized the 5th hasn't been represented by a Republican since Nancy Johnson man its been a while

The district was gerrymandered after the 2010 census to take a slice of the very blue third district and give it to the fifth making it much more difficult for Republicans to win there



Nope, that is a lie.

In 2010 the map was drawn by courts. It was done in a way to make the least possible change to the 2000 map, which was drawn to protect Republican Nancy Johnson.

CT requires a supermajority to draw legislative maps, which either requires bipartisan approved map or it gets drawn by a court which will make the smallest changes possible to balance populations.

Yes, it’s the same song and dance every 10 years, there’s a bipartisan commission with an equal number of Democrats and Republicans, the Republicans draw their map, the Democrats draw their map, neither side agrees, it gets sent to be decided on by a court run by judges who were all appointed and approved by Democrats, and coincidentally the map that gets approved always ends up looking exactly like the one Democrats wanted in the first place, funny how that works.



Here is what a real Democratic gerrymander of CT looks like.

That map makes the 5th district 5 points bluer than what it currently is by including Bridgeport in exchange for the rural northwest corner. It also shores up the 2nd district by putting Manchester in it and giving the heavily red northeast part of the state to the 1st. The current 2nd could be competitive if Joe Courtney ever retires, although it is quite safe while he is there.

The current map is not gerrymandered for Democrats. But they also know that the courts won't accept the kind of map I drew, so they just offer the least possible change map that they think courts will accept.



He is not pro-choice. This is a clear lie.

He has said that he will vote against protecting the right for a women to choose. He has said that he will defend states condemning women to die from dangerous pregnancies.

What he is doing is the equivalent of someone saying that they were against slavery, but that they would oppose the federal government banning slavery. That person was never anti-slavery, they were just hiding their evil views behind a rhetorical shield.

That doesn't sound like the George I know, can you cite you're accusations please?



He refuses to acknowledge that Biden won.

He has invited multiple fascist congressmembers who voted to end democracy in America to fundraise with him. He is aligning himself with the wing of the party that voted to overturn the 2020 election and end America as a country.

I wouldn't have believed this about him a few years ago either, but he has shown who he is and he is siding with the people who tried to destroy this country.

Well I'm not arguing with you I just haven't heard of what you are accusing him of honestly, I will do my own research to find out what is going on with this



On January 6th 2021 something much worse than the riot occurred, 147 Republicans in the House and Senate voted to turn America into a fascistic dictatorship by overturning the clear election results.

These people are traitors to our country. They attempted to treasonously end our system of free and fair elections and replace it with our government with an unelected ruler. These are the people who George Logan is choosing the affiliate and align himself with. I do encourage you to do your own research and I understand that it sounds absurd, because it is absurd that so many of our elected officials would do that. But it is what they did, and it is who George Logan has clearly sided with.

Well thank you for you're understanding that I prefer to find evidence of what you are saying and I also appreciate the fact we are able to engage into a civil discussion without name calling, that is much appreciated. I need to go to sleep now, have a goodnight
