31j LQVhcmL._SY300__0.jpg

The 2012 U.S. Senate race in Connecticut was one of the most expensive senate campaigns in the country that year. Sacred Heart University political science professor Gary Rose has written a new book about the race called “No Holds Barred.”  The book begins with U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman making a historic announcement that he would not seek another term, opening up the senate seat in Connecticut. The exceptionally hard-fought senatorial campaign was eventually won by the Democrat, Chris Murphy, who defeated Linda McMahon. She serves on the Board of Trustees of Sacred Heart University.
