Local Democrats got fired up on Sunday during a pre-election rally at the Litchfield home of Democratic State Central Committee member Audrey Blondin.
First selectman candidate Matthew Blasavage attended as did U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty and state Attorney General George Jepsen. Blasavage was the lone Litchfield Democratic candidate to attend the function Blondin has been hosting ahead of the November election for several years.
In comments to the crowd, Blasavage said he's confident about his chances of unseating seven-term incumbent First Selectman Leo Paul Jr. He said he spent much of Sunday knocking on doors and talking with voters about his qualifications and candidacy.
