Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin, both Democrats, are expected to win open Senate seats in their states, according to the Associated Press.
Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, a candidate for U.S. Senate to fill the open seat of the retiring Christopher Dodd (D. Conn.), is getting a PAC boost from the Connecticut Credit Union League.
The impending retirement of Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.) could make it easier for that panel to reach a consensus on regulatory restructuring, according to lobbyists for the credit union movement.
In the wake of falling poll numbers, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.) is expected to announce today that he will retire from office at the end of the year, according to several media reports.
