Congressional races set in Conn.

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) Connecticut Republicans have endorsed candidates to challenge the state's five incumbent, Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Litchfield real estate developer Mark Greenberg received the party's backing on Friday, the opening day of the two-day Republican State Convention being held at the Mohegan Sun casino. Greenberg will challenge freshman Democratic Rep. Elizabeth Esty in the 5th Congressional District.

This marks the first time Greenberg has won his party's endorsement in the 5th District.  He issued a statement that said, in part:

 

"As we look forward to November, I will continue -- as I have been doing for months -- to share with the voters of the 5th District my plans for building a better future for our country. I will continue to expose Elizabeth Esty's woeful record of failure on the economy, job creation and ObamaCare.  Our families and children deserve better than what they are getting from our government.  When I get to Washington - with your help - we will reverse our nation's economic course, untangle the mountains of red tape foisted on families and businesses by ObamaCare and other mandates and begin in a new direction to create true prosperity for our citizens. Once again, thank you!"

In the 4th District, former state Sen. Dan Debicella will challenge U.S. Rep. Jim Himes.
