Sam Caligiuri, the 2010 Republican nominee for Congress in the 5th District, today announced his endorsement of Andrew Roraback for Congress. Caligiuri, who also served with Roraback as a member of the State Senate, made the announcement with Roraback on the steps of Town Hall in Cheshire.
“Andrew Roraback clearly represents our party’s best chance at winning this Congressional seat. Andrew’s years as a conscientious, fiscally-conservative member of the state legislature and his proven electability make him the very best choice to be the Republican nominee for Congress in the Fifth District. He will serve the district ably and with great integrity. I am honored to endorse his candidacy,” said Caligiuri.
Roraback said he was thankful and humbled to receive Caligiuri’s endorsement.

“Having served with Sam in the State Senate, and knowing what a smart, capable leader he is, I am honored to receive his endorsement for Congress, and grateful for his expression of confidence in our campaign,” said Roraback. “This endorsement further fuels the growing momentum our campaign is experiencing every day. It serves to strengthen my firm conviction that my proven record of winning elections, serving competently, and being grounded in conservative pro-growth economic policies make me our party’s very best hope to take back this seat in November.”

Caligiuri joins an ever-growing list of Republican leaders and elected officials who have endorsed Roraback’s candidacy. A complete list of endorsements can be found at
