Uncasville —Like a political assembly line, the Republican Party today simultaneously churned out endorsed candidates for Congress in all five districts, overwhelmingly backing two repeat candidates, Dan Debicella in the 4th and Mark Greenberg in the 5th.
The 4th District of Fairfield County and the sprawling 5th of Western Connecticut are considered to be the GOP’s two best chances to win a congressional race here for the first time since 2006. In both districts, the party is up against well-funded and well-prepared incumbents.
Debicella, 39, of a Shelton, a former two-term state senator who lost to U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, D-4th, in 2010, accepted the endorsement with a sharp attack on the state of the U.S. economy, the administration of Barack Obama and Himes’ role as a fundraiser for congressional Democrats.
“Jim is so focused on raising money for his party that he is willing to trade legislation for it,” Debicella said. He won easily over two other candidates and appears to face no primary.
