And she’s underway… catching up with Miss CT, halfway thru Miss America


Two nights of preliminary competitions at Miss America in Atlantic City, N.J. are out of the way. One more preliminary event is left before the finals are held on Sunday.

Thus far, Miss Connecticut Eliza Kanner has shown her talent on stage with her foreign language performance of “Memory” from the musical “Cats.” She has taken the stage for the on-stage question where she spoke about HuskyTHON and its support for the Children’s Miracle Network (the official platform charity for the Miss America Organization).

Friday night, she will take to the stage in a swimsuit for Lifestyle and Fitness and her evening gown.

In the mid-afternoon before night 2 of preliminaries, Kanner gave up a portion of her lunch hour to talk to the press.

Here’s the interview.
