With opposing camps in Connecticut the senatorial contest poised to start debates in the upcoming weeks, still unpopular and largely unnoticed Republican candidate Arthur Schlesinger is asking “Can I come too? There are voters who want to know what I think, my mother for one.” He argued to the debate commission that it is vital that voters have a forum to compare and contrast his views with candidates Ned Lamont and Joe Lieberman, and “I swear I think some things different from Lieberman. He’s been a Democrat up to now. That’s just it. I’m with the other party. It’s only fair.”

To this point, the commission has not responded, on one occasion, saying they were unfamiliar with Schlesinger or his candidacy.
