Roraback's endorsement is personal

Some eyebrows were raised yesterday when state Sen. Sam Caligiuri made the formal announcement that he was dropping out of the race for U.S. Senate and switching to the race for the 5th District House seat, and that popular Northwest Connecticut state Sen. Andrew Roraback was endorsing him.
Caligiuri is the standard-bearer of the Republican party's far right-wing in Connecticut, and the moderate Roraback is on the opposite end of that spectrum.
In an article in today's Register Citizen, Roraback acknowledges that point and says that Caligiuri has his support because he is a close friend who has shown integrity over their years together in the state Senate.
