Former U.S. Rep. Nancy Johnson, who represented 5th Congressional District towns for years before losing her 2007 re-election bid to Democrat Chris Murphy, was in Torrington on Tuesday to support congressional candidate and fellow Republican Andrew Roraback.

Roraback, of Goshen, lost the 5th District seat to Democrat Elizabeth Esty, of Cheshire.

Johnson spent about an hour at the Backstage restaurant chatting with Roraback supporters and watching the numbers come in. However, she left long before Roraback entered the room to deliver his concession speech. 

In an interview with the Courant, Johnson stressed that Connecticut needs to elect representatives from both political parties and said that the state really needs Roraback.

Johnson, who helped Roraback with his campaign, said she was vested in the race because she is concerned that Congress will soon not understand the depth of the issues the country faces.

Johnson also called Esty predictable and said that she follows other members of her party.

    Nancy Johnson said, ” Connecticut needs to elect representatives from both political parties”.

    Why vote for Republicans then? Why even try?
    A real Republican would say that Connecticut needs to throw out all the incumbent liberal JOB KILLERS.

    Go away Nancy! You and Pat Longo should each borrow a rocking chair from Linda McMahon and take up knitting.
