The New York Times endorses Democrat Chris Murphy ’96 for Connecticut’s 5th Congressional district. (Thanks to David Kane ’58 for the link.)

Chris Murphy, a Democrat, faces his first run for re-election. His opponent, David Cappiello, is a Republican state senator with a reputation for independence. As a member of the House Financial Services Committee, Mr. Murphy backed the credit card bill of rights and legislation to help homeowners refinance and thus keep their homes. We endorse Chris Murphy.

AFAIK, the only other Eph running for Congress is Mark Udall ’72, Democratic candidate for senator in Colorado. Are there any others? What about other major offices? The Williams Public Affairs office relies on EphBlog to create/maintain this list. Please help us help them.
