Republican state lawmakers say they believe federal authorities are trying to determine whether any Connecticut House Republicans were pressured to use a particular company for their political campaign mailings.
Rep. Dan Carter told The Associated Press the FBI asked him why he switched companies. Carter said he told investigators because the first company raised its prices. He said he wasn't pressured by anyone.
Veteran state Rep. Arthur O'Neill said he hasn't spoken with the FBI but has never been pressured to use a particular company for his campaign mailings.
