Paul Formica Seeks GOP Nomination For Congress

East Lyme's First Selectman will challenge Madison's Daria Novak for the Republican nomination

Capitol Watch, The Hartford Courant's state politics blog, is reporting that East Lyme First Selectman Paul Formica is running for the Republican nomination for the 2nd Congressional District for the United States House of Representatives.

According to the blog, Formica will compete against Madison's Daria Novak for the GOP nomination, now that Rep. Chris Coutu has decided to seek a seat in the state Senate.

Rep. Joe Courtney currently occupies the 2nd Congressional District seat that both Formica and Novak hope to take over.

Capitol Watch says that Formica announced his candidacy in a press release and that he will be visiting East Lyme, Colchester, Enfield and Vernon to officially announce the news on Tuesday.

“It’s time we look at where we are as a country and take immediate action to guarantee that the ‘American Dream’ will be available for every generation of future Americans," Formica, a small business owner, said in the press release.

"We need to be able to leave our kids a truly ‘United’ States of America that is safe and financially secure."
