“This is a very humbling moment for me, my campaign, and my supporters. I have enjoyed the spirited race for the Republican nomination, and I appreciate the process each of the delegates went through to make their decision. While I have been taking the fight right to Chris Murphy from the beginning of my campaign, I am thrilled to be able to continue this fight as the Republican nominee to face Congressman Murphy in November. There is no greater task than enacting a pro-jobs economic policy and restoring fiscal responsibility to Washington. Chris Murphy and Nancy Pelosi have been advancing the wrong policies for the Fifth District and our state, and I look forward to listening to and sharing my vision for a brighter future with voters throughout the District,” said Caligiuri.

“Sam Caligiuri is by far our strongest candidate in this race to take on Chris Murphy. Not only is he battle-tested, but he has the in-depth knowledge on the issues facing our nation because he has tackled some of those same issues on the local level and at the state level as a State Senator. It is easy for candidates to speak in generalities, but Sam knows the ins and outs of the legislating process and will be an effective voice for the Fifth District in Washington,” said Litchfield First Selectman Leo Paul.

“I am very impressed with the way Sam led the city of Waterbury out of a devastating situation. His priorities of bringing fiscal conservatism and government reform to Washington are very clear, and exactly what we need to start fixing Washington.
