The Republican 5th Congressional District candidate is weighing in on his loss, saying that he is richer for the experience.
Sherman First Selectman Clay Cope called it an incredible honor to carry the Republican banner in this election. He thanked everyone involved in his campaign for their generous support and encouragement.
While he did not achieve his goal, Cope says Donald Trump won the White House and that would not have been possible without the support of a broad coalition of voters. Cope says he and President-elect Trump are aligned on a broad range of issues, and he knows the country will now embark on a new and better direction. Cope supported the GOP candidate from the time he won the Presidential primary in Connecticut.
