The next in my Challenger Series of videos shot with new candidates I met at CPAC 2012 is Brian K. Hill a candidate for the U.S. Senate from Connecticut.
I found Mr. Hill to be a serious-minded candidate, sure in his positions, comfortable in his skin, hard-charging, and quick with a sure-footed answer to my questions. A former leader in both the U.S. Army and the U.S. Navy, he is a commanding presence.
Hill as no mere ground pounder, either (not that there is any shame in being a ground pounder). While in service, Hill, a JAG officer, was a resident expert on federal contract law, international law, and administrative law. This means he has familiarity with the nitty-gritty of how government procurement and relations works. And that is something we sorely need in a representative, especially if we expect that rep. to help untangle the mess that the system has become.
Hill is facing two primary opponents. Linda McMahon the wrestling industry magnate who ran and lost in 2010, and the less than conservative former U.S. Representative Chris Shays.
Hill seems to be an attractive candidate. See if you agree.
