HARTFORD - U.S. Senate Candidate and State Rep. Dan Carter (R- Bethel) talks to Jenn and Al about his recent trip to Israel, and the fight against terror. A military veteran, he also shares his thoughts on the Pentagon's decision to drop the ban on transgender individuals being able to serve openly in the armed forces.

All of Connecticut's members of the U.S. House participated recently in a sit-in, demanding a vote on gun violence legislation.

Carter, the Republican challenging Democratic U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal in November, said the group focused so much on the gun issue following shootings in Newtown, Orlando, and elsewhere that it has neglected other issues, such as fighting terrorism or overall violence in society.
