CT Greens and Libertarians about to take it on the nose?

Sen. Andrew W. Roraback, R-Goshen, submitted an oped to The Hartford Courant about public financing of campaigns in that state, and back room deals designed to protect the dollar bill lined pockets of CT's lawmakers.

Most interestingly, the Senator, a Republican mind you, said this: "Finally, it is ironic that a campaign finance reform bill will make it substantially more difficult for Green Party, Libertarian and other third-party candidates to access public funds readily available to major party candidates. Republicans and Democrats have, with this bill, protected their positions of power.

Folks, when an elected Republican says we're about to get screwed, I tend to believe 'em. I hope someone in CT will let us know what, if anything, we out-of-staters can do.
