New Hampshire Christened
The USS New Hampshire (SSN-778) was christened today (Saturday), eight months early. Check out more pictures here. CT Representative Joe Courtney has been working hard to bring home the bacon to CT and while he faces a re-election battle with the former SUBASE CO, Sean Sullivan, his ability to get submarines built endears him to me, and likely to voters in Connecticut as well. Not to say that having Sullivan wouldn't also help, but, having members in somewhat unsafe seats in the majority party get a little help from their leadership in getting defense spending sent to their home states, is a good thing, in this case, for the submarine force. Would Sullivan get the same respect and treatment as a minority member in the next Congress? Doubtful. It's the way the game is played in Washington, like it or not.
