CT Dems Pounce on McKinney\’s Endorsement of Greenberg

by Categorized: John McKinney, Mark Greenberg, tea party Date:

Connecticut Democrats must have had a tracker present this morning when Republican gubernatorial candidate John McKinney expressed his support for fellow Republican Mark Greenberg, who is running for Congress.

The tracker compiled a mash-up video of McKinney\’s endorsement.

James Hallinan, spokesman for the state Democratic party, called Greenberg a \”tea party extremist\” in a press release accompanying the video. \”When throwing his support behind tea partier Greenberg, McKinney said, \’Mark is right on the issues,\’\’\’ Hallinan said.

Greenberg told Hearst Connecticut newspapers in October that he shares \”a lot of the same ideals as the tea party,\” which prompted Hallinan to ask if McKinney also shares those tea party ideals.

The video is after the jump (warning: the sound quality is not great.)
