The Newtown Republican Town Committee has hosted a pre-convention Senatorial Forum for GOP candidates. The forum is similar to one held in February for 5th Congressional District candidates, which was a standing room only.
Committee leadership says all convention-bound US Senate candidates and their campaign representatives were expected to attend last night's event. The forum was not a debate but rather a chance for the candidates to speak on issues important to them, and then take questions from a moderator.
There was a town committee meeting followed by the candidate forum.
