State Republican Chairman Jerry Labriola says that his meetings to discuss the future direction of the party are not come-one-come-all events as reported earlier this week.
\”It\’s invitation only,\’\’ Labroila said Thursday. \”It\’s essentially a strategy discussion. There are things we need to do within the party … you have to start with party officials.\”
While Republicans held the line in the General Assembly, every party member running for Congress lost in the November election. Labriola said the party must talk about how to expand its base.
The closed-door sessions continue in West Hartford this evening. There are additional meetings in Branford, East Lyme and Torrington in coming days.
