RoadTrip: Is Andrew Roraback 2012's version of Scott Brown in CT?

One fact of the Race for the Sen­ate in CT that has been over­looked is the seat that was held by the Demo­c­rat Can­di­date for sen­ate Chris Mur­phy is now open.

and that dis­trict in the North­west cor­ner of the state CT-​5 has a can­di­date named Andrew Roraback who might be in a posi­tion to be the 2012 of Scott Brown in CT.

Although I didn’t have a lot of time to speak with Andrew, I spent a con­sid­er­able amount of time with his staff, he is a long serv­ing mem­ber of the CT state House and Sen­ate, and he was the only mem­ber of the GOP del­e­ga­tion to vote for death penalty repeal giv­ing him some crossover appeal.

Most impor­tantly the new dis­trict includes the towns he rep­re­sented for many many years so he has a strong base of vot­ers on both sides of the aisle who are famil­iar with and respect him.

So we have a GOP can­di­date with a long record and some crossover appeal run­ning in an open seat. Unlike Scott Brown in 2010 he doesn’t have the advan­tage of an oppo­nent mak­ing crit­i­cal mis­takes on the trail but also unlike Brown he is not run­ning statewide so his famil­iar­ity with the dis­trict and the vot­ers could make all the difference.

With Mitt Rom­ney and the GOP poised to con­trol all three branches of the Gov­ern­ment in Jan­u­ary per­haps CT like Mass before them might decide they want to have at least one voice in the major­ity when the time comes to make deci­sions. Andrew Roraback can be that voice and with the GOP with such an advan­tage in fundrais­ing over the Dems the party is in a potion to help make it happen.

Vote Andrew Roraback for Congress

Even the bluest of states deserve at least one seat in the Majority.

Update: Extra brown in the title, Hey I’ve been dri­ving all day, a tad tired you know.

One fact of the Race for the Senate in CT that has been overlooked is the seat that was held by the Democrat Candidate for senate Chris Murphy is now open.

and that district in the Northwest corner of the state CT-5 has a candidate named Andrew Roraback who might be in a position to be the 2012 of Scott Brown in CT.

Although I didn’t have a lot of time to speak with Andrew, I spent a considerable amount of time with his staff, he is a long serving member of the CT state House and Senate, and he was the only member of the GOP delegation to vote for death penalty repeal giving him some crossover appeal.

Most importantly the new district includes the towns he represented for many many years so he has a strong base of voters on both sides of the aisle who are familiar with and respect him.

So we have a GOP candidate with a long record and some crossover appeal running in an open seat. Unlike Scott Brown in 2010 he doesn’t have the advantage of an opponent making critical mistakes on the trail but also unlike Brown he is not running statewide so his familiarity with the district and the voters could make all the difference.

With Mitt Romney and the GOP poised to control all three branches of the Government in January perhaps CT like Mass before them might decide they want to have at least one voice in the majority when the time comes to make decisions. Andrew Roraback can be that voice and with the GOP with such an advantage in fundraising over the Dems the party is in a potion to help make it happen.
