Usually, candidate forums in Wilton are pretty tame affairs. Those running, and those electing them, tend to be respectful. This year, however, partisanship has become evident and it goes beyond a few cheers and rounds of applause.
This is not to say people should not react to what candidates say, but a recent incident after the debate between Jim Himes and Harry Arora on Sunday afternoon crossed the line. A woman approached one of the candidates and called him “a hateful man.” It goes without saying, neither candidate is that.
