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.
