Connecticut’s 4th District Rep. Jim Himes will be receiving re-election support from the Democratic Congressional Committee through its Frontline program. Frontline is meant to support vulnerable incumbents by giving them access to increased campaign funding. Himes’ seat was occupied by Republican Chris Shays for nearly two decades. Conn. Rep. Chris Murphy, a recipient of Frontline support in the 2008 congressional election, will help oversee the program.
