The Connecticut  chapter of CAIR called on state Republican leaders to repudiate statements made by congressional candidate Rick Torres during a GOP primary debate.

CAIR’s press release described Torres’ remarks as “racist,” “anti-Muslim,” “intolerant,” and “Islamophobic.”  CAIR also attributed a May 10, 2010 bomb attack on a Florida  mosque to a “growing atmosphere of anti-Muslim sentiment nationwide that results from Islamophobic statements like those made by Torres.”
