Simmons had pledged to personally call five donors from Connecticut who donated to his campaign in the last 24 hours. The fundraising ploy was meant to take a jab at Simmons's opponent, Sen. Chris Dodd (D), who only received five in-state donations in the first fundraising quarter this year.
Simmons tweeted Wednesday:
True to my word I am calling those in CT that donated via www.joinrobsimmons.com Watch one of the calls here: http://tinyurl.com/ccsrkw
He then followed up:
I had the pleasure of calling 5 of our online donors to personally thank them for their commitment to our campaign http://tinyurl.com/cfcd69
