DescriptionLike many married couples Christine Stuart and Doug Hardy share a weekly ritual. Unlike most married couples theirs involves obsessing over state politics. Stuart and Hardy spend their Thursday nights preparing the “Friday Night Fix.” The “Fix” is a weekly e-mail roundup of Connecticut political news covering everything from the state’s most recent budget battle to the fate of a particular piece of legislation to the latest published op-eds discussing campaign finance. The Fix has become a staple of their Connecticut based all-things-political news site CTNewsJunkie.
