O'Connor and Larson Debate at Trinity


Last Tuesday evening, October, 20, First Congressional District candidates Kevin J. O'Connor, 31, and John B. Larson, 50, participated in a debate at Trinity College.

O'Connor, the Republican candidate, is seeking an elective office for the first time. Larson, a Democrat, served four terms as President Pro-Tempore of the State Senate, the longest anyone has held this position in the state.

Several hundred attended the debate which was sponsored by the League of Women Voters, the Federalist Society, Trinity College Republicans and Democrats and the Trinity College Calendar Office.

O'Connor, a former Democrat who switched parties in 1997, is mounting what many consider the first serious Republican campaign for the First District seat since 1970, when former Hartford Mayor Antonina P. Uccello narrowly lost to Democrat William R. Cotter.
