The 2022 Election is Nov. 8.

Gov. Ned Lamont said that Republican Bob Stefanowski’s consulting for Neom, a company founded by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, calls into question his opponent’s fitness and independence.

Lamont’s comments were the first since Stefanowski confirmed Oct. 12 that he had been concealing his employment by Neom, a client of a consulting practice that has allowed him to largely self-fund his campaign for governor.

“I can see why somebody running for office wanted to hide that from the public,” Lamont said Oct. 14. “I think it raises some real questions about his judgment and his independence.”

Isn’t it fascinating how the press only seems interested in one party’s sources of income? No mention of Lamont’s wildly successful cable monopolies on college campuses that rewarded him with $100s of millions in profits, nor his wife’s firm’s no bid contracts with the state for entities in Tennessee.
