State GOP and Democrats Release Dueling Valentine's Day Cards

Where is the love?

Connecticut Democrats and Republicans are sharing Valentine’s Day cards today, though they aren’t the sort of conversation hearts common for today’s holiday.

With neither party able to take a reprieve from politics to smell the roses, each sent out Valentine’s day cards on behalf of candidates/politicians in the other’s party.

Democrats came out with the first hit (as they maturely reminded Republicans on Twitter), with a series of cards from Republican candidates for office.

Their cards included a note from Congressional candidate Mark Greenberg ("You’re awesome! Like…shut down the government awesome!") and gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley ("Can all my money buy your love…or at least your vote?") among others from State Senator and possible gubernatorial candidate Toni Boucher, gubernatorial candidate and State Sen. John McKinney, Danbury mayor and gubernatorial candidate Mark Boughton and congressional candidate Dan Debicella.

Republicans sent three of their own love notes a few hours later, featuring Valentine's fromGov.Dannel P. Malloy.

One read “Roses are read violents are blue, I’ll raise your taxes and kill jobs too"and another “Please accept this valentine’s card, in place of a job.”
