John B. Larson

Larson was unanimously selected tonight as the Democratic nominee for the 1st Congressional District of Connecticut. I was one of the delegates from my town of West Hartford. Larson is a five-term incumbent from a heavily Democratic district and potentially a future Speaker of the House. He had the foresight to oppose the Iraq War from the beginning, so he is likely to remain popular as Progressives become increasingly influential in the Democratic Party.

 

I took this at the end of the convention. The lighting isn't great, but I think it captures a lot more soul than his official portrait (which can be seen on Wikipedia)
