Washington – Democrats across the country are trying to tie their Republican opponents to Donald Trump and the race for the 4th District congressional seat is no different.
Rep. Jim Himes, 50, seeking a fourth term in the U.S. House of Representatives, has been challenged by John Shaban, a Republican who represents Easton, Redding and Weston in the state House.
For Shaban, the race is about Himes’ effectiveness and Shaban’s wish to bring more federal dollars to Connecticut and loosen federal reins on how the state can spend those dollars.
“Right now we are sending (taxpayer) money to D.C. and begging for some of it back from people who are not from Connecticut,” Shaban said.
