Two Congressional districts represent Greater Danbury area towns

The candidates in the 4th Congressional District met for just one in-person debate this campaign season.  Democratic incumbent Jim Himes is seeking a 7th term and is being challenged by a political newcomer.  Republican Jonathan Riddle, who works in financial consulting and wealth management. 

Himes, who voted for the ACA, said while he would defend it relentlessly, it isn't perfect.  Riddle says the ACA has some good points, but is a massive failure.  Himes touted his support for the bipartisan stimulus bill passed in response to the pandemic in March and noted that the House has passed two other stimulus packages, neither of which have come up for a vote in the Senate.  Riddle called on Congress to do more and stop dragging their feet. 

The 4th Congressional District encompasses Bridgeport, Darien, Easton, Fairfield, Greenwich, Monroe, New Canaan, Norwalk, Oxford, Redding, Ridgefield, part of Shelton, Stamford, Trumbull, Weston, Westport and Wilton.

The 5th District Congressional candidates met for several debates.  Democratic incumbent Jahana Hayes is seeking a second term.  She is being challenged by former federal prosecutor David X. Sullivan of New Fairfield, and former Newtown Police Commissioner Bruce Walczak on the Independent line.
