UK payday lenders play role in race for Connecticut governors

Lamont’s campaign called the ad “patently bogus” and Lamont himself asked Stefanowski to withdraw the ad on Tuesday at an independent press conference.

“Annie certainly has nothing to do with it. Leave my wife out of this, ”Lamont said Tuesday.
