A late challenge to Roberta Willis ... sort of

District 63 Republican state representative candidate John Rigby is not the only unopposed candidate on the ballot to face a last-minute write-in campaign.
Michael Lynch, an attorney who lost handily to State Rep. Roberta Willis (D-64th District) four years ago, attended the Torrington Rotary Club meeting today wearing a big "Michael Lynch for State Representative" pin from four years ago and announced to the crowd that he'd cast a ballot for himself today as a write-in candidate against Willis.
Unlike Norfolk attorney William Riiska's serious challenge of Rigby in the wake of Rep. George Wilber's resignation, we can assume that Lynch didn't get certified as an "official" write-in candidate with the Secretary of the State's office.
