County Times endorses Murphy, Roraback

The Litchfield County Times has endorsed Chris Murphy for U.S. Congress in the 5th District and Andrew Roraback for state Senate in the 30th District. Click headlines below for full articles.

Murphy for Congress, With Hesitations
U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy (D-Cheshire), the first-term incumbent who defeated veteran congresswoman Nancy L. Johnson in 2006, explains on his campaign Web site that restoring the public's trust in government was a principal reason he decided to run for Congress, and adds that it continues to be his "driving force."

Roraback Is Role Model
In a recent interview, conducted when the state budget deficit was projected at $300 million and rising for the current fiscal year, State Sen. Andrew Roraback (R-Goshen) said he would not increase taxes on "a beleaguered public." No need to read his lips; when Mr. Roraback makes a promise he never breaks it. He also never misses a vote, and despite being a loyal and valued member of the GOP, he has served his constituents in a way that has always been more independent than dogmatic.
