Volunteers at Middletown’s Democratic headquarters will be treated to a special guest appearance by Sandra Fluke and U.S. Senate Candidate, Chris Murphy, and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro. Ms. Fluke came to prominence when she testified February 2012 before Democratic members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on the importance of requiring insurance plans to cover birth control in President Obama’s health care legislation. She was also a featured speaker at this year’s Democratic National Convention.
Ms. Fluke is one of many surrogates traveling across Connecticut in support of Chris Murphy’s U.S. Senate campaign. She is speaking to volunteers, reminding them of the importance of their work on behalf of Chris Murphy’s Senate race, and his long-time support of women’s rights and reproductive rights.
Fluke’s fight for insurance access to contraception drew attention earlier this year when Republicans denied her a chance to testify at a Congressional hearing on the issue. Talk show host Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut” when she spoke out, and he later apologized.
