State Senator Paul Formica

This hour, State Senator Dennis Bradley is indicted in a campaign finance case and removed from his leadership post on the Public Safety Committee.  That committee had handled a major proposal to allow online gambling and sports betting. The bill was approved by the state senate last night. It heads to the governor's desk.

Meanwhile, negotiations are underway on a 2-year state budget. With Democrats holding the governor’s office and both houses of the General Assembly, is the GOP at the table?

Guests:

  • Paul Formica -- State Senate Republican Leader Pro Tem
  • Julia Bergman -- Hearst Connecticut Media Politics Reporter
