Republican Nominee In 3rd District Seeks Attention With Crude Video

Oct. 12--It's "South Park" with a heavy dose of Donald Trump.

A nearly seven-minute video animation created by 3rd District Republican congressional challenger Angel Cadena Jr. -- reminiscent in its political incorrectness to the president -- is creating a social media buzz.

The sophomoric and profane video insults Native Americans, Democrats and even state GOP Chair J.R. Romano.

It shows a purple-haired likeness of longtime Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, who is facing Cadena for the second time in two years, at the Senate confirmation hearing of Brett Kavanaugh.

Standing next to DeLauro is Elizabeth Warren in a Native American headdress, a familiar swipe at the Massachusetts senator and 2020 presidential prospect who has been nicknamed "Pocahontas" by Trump because of her Native American ancestry claims.

The pair watches Richard Blumenthal, in a Marine Corps dress uniform, questioning Kavanaugh about serving on the Supreme Court. The Connecticut senator has been a frequent target of Trump's mocking because of his past misrepresentation that he served in Vietnam, when he was a Marine Corps reservist who remained stateside during the war.

Cadena, a Marine Corps veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, is embracing the political incorrect label.

"Poking fun at all the stereotypes that people get all bent up about," Cadena, who lives in Shelton, said.

The video opens by showing drug overdose victims convulsing on the New Haven Green -- a reference to an August incident in which nearly 80 people required medical treatment after using a tainted batch of the synthetic drug K2 that garnered national attention.

The campaign manager for DeLauro, who is seeking a 15th term and is from New Haven, declined to comment.

Not even Connecticut's top Republican is spared by Cadena, a prohibitive underdog in the 3rd Congressional District race.

"Are you going to raise money so I can get it on TV?" Cadena asks Romano after showing him a campaign video in the animation.

"No, I'm going to work on campaigns I have an actual chance of winning," Romano responds.

Romano downplayed the scene.

"The media pays no attention to him," Romano said. "So he made a video to get some attention. I don't run everybody's campaign."

Romano pointed out that Cadena is of Native American and Puerto Rican descent when asked about the animation's references to Warren.

"He maybe takes some umbrage with the fact that she claims to be Native American," Romano said.

State Democratic Chairman Nick Balletto said the scene of Cadena and Romano is telling.

"While I'm working hard to elect our Democratic candidates across the state, according to Republican candidates, J.R. is hiding from his," Balletto said.
