Today: Murphy, Blumenthal, Himes meet with CT Muslim and LGBT leaders

U.S. Senator Chris Murphy, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal, U.S. Congressman Jim Himes, and Stamford Mayor David Martin are hosting a public meeting with Connecticut’s Muslim and LGBT leaders on the Orlando shooting.

The meeting is being held Saturday, June 18, at 9 a.m. in the Rainbow Café Meeting Room at the First Congregational Church, 1 Walton Place, Stamford.

Murphy recently held a nearly 15-hour filibuster on the floor of the U.S. Senate seeking to close the terror gap and expand background checks for firearm purchases. At the conclusion of the filibuster, he said Senate Democrats had received a commitment from Republicans.
