Leora Levy, the Republican candidate, criticized Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut for the damage caused by inflation at the sole debate of the campaign.
The candidates were asked to rate the economy during the discussion.
According to CTInsider, Blumenthal stated, “The grade is literally ongoing … I would give the economy a chance to get an ‘A,’ which I think it could do.”
During the live broadcast, Levy assigned a notably different grade.
“Just as my opponent misled the American people on whether he served in Vietnam, he said he did and he didn’t,” she said.
In his 2010 Senate campaign, he mentioned his service in Vietnam. However, The New York Times reports that he never served there.
“Whether he attends a Communist Party, he said he didn’t and he did. Once again, I’m not sure how we can believe much of what he said,” Levy added.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, Blumenthal attended an event sponsored by the Connecticut People’s World Committee, which is linked with the Communist Party USA, in December 2021.
He later stated that he was unaware of the event’s affiliation with the Community Party, despite the fact that the affiliation was reportedly made obvious before Blumenthal entered the stage.
Then, Levy concentrated on the economics.
“Because frankly, he raised taxes on the middle class with the Biden-Blumenthal Build Inflation Back Better Act,” she said.

And as for the economy?
“I would grade the economy an ‘F,’” she said.
Summers, director of the White House economic council under former President Barack Obama, warned last year that tossing too much money around would feed the fires of inflation. CONTINUE READING…
