A few hours later, Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) fired back at Murphy’s tweet, dismissing quality of Connecticut’s pizza, going so far as to compare it with cheese and crackers.

Peters included in his tweet a link to an article in “Food & Wine” magazine that featured high praise of Detroit-style pie.
