Reclaim Connecticut (RCT)

is an alternative to mainstream media in Connecticut politics. RCT’s mission is to offer no-frills news to anyone interested in the direction of our state.

Two Connecticut natives founded RCT in 2016. They realized Connecticut media report what our leaders say, but refuse to question it. They tell how policies will impact politicians, but not taxpayers.

RCT looks to change that. We will help readers reclaim Connecticut with coverage that runs counter to the mainstream.
