MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) — A state Senate candidate in Connecticut is facing criticism after sending out a campaign mailer that includes a drawing depicting his Jewish opponent with cash in his hands and a maniacal look on his face.
Steve Ginsburg, regional director of the Anti-Defamation League of Connecticut, says the mailer from Republican Ed Charamut "suggests an age-old anti-Semitic trope." Middletown state Rep. Matthew Lesser, the Democrat, says he finds it deeply upsetting.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — President Donald Trump's agenda has emerged as a focal point in the race for attorney general in Connecticut, where even the Republican candidates agree some of his policies should be challenged in court.
The current attorney general, George Jepsen, a Democrat who is not seeking re-election, has filed or joined other states in filing nearly two dozen lawsuits against the Trump administration on issues ranging from taxation to pollution to the 2020 census.
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Tuesday he will sign newly passed legislation that bans devices enabling guns to fire like automatic weapons.
"I have yet to hear one legitimate reason why anyone needs to own a device that can fire 90 bullets every 10 seconds," said the Democrat, shortly after the state Senate approved the bump stock legislation by a vote of 26-10. The same bill cleared the House of Representatives last week, 114-35.
