A Brookfield Republican is seeking an unaffiliated run for Congress.  John Pistone has decided not to pursue a primary run for the 5th District seat, but rather petition his way on to the November ballot as an unaffiliated candidate.  Pistone says the Connecticut Republican Party believes he is too conservative and that the party is moving further left.  He calls himself an outsider, not part of the political establishment and not content with the status quo.
