Connecticut's 32nd state Senate district

ezs note: Next Tuesday, voters in Connecticut's 32nd state Senate district will hold a special election to replace Rob Kane. Although I am somewhat reticent to endorse anyone in this race, unless Eric Berthel (R) shows forth ironclad endorsement for transgender people, I would likely encourage you to vote for Greg Cava (D).  (Petitioning candidate Dan Lynch is also running.)

Above all, I urge you to vote.  It's your one chance to directly affect who your state Senator will be.  So, uh, vote!
