A GOP slpit in Canaan?

Today, Peter Lawson, Chairman of the Canaan Republican Town Committee, has endorsed Caligiuri’s candidacy. The Bernier Campaign also claims to have obtained the endorsement of Chairman Lawson.
However, when asked about the endorsement, a representative for Caligieri opponent Justin Bernier's office pointed out that the town's RTC as a whole voted to endorse Bernier several weeks ago.
"I am very impressed with the way Sam led the city of Waterbury out of a devastating situation. His priorities of bringing fiscal conservatism and government reform to Washington are very clear, and exactly what we need to start fixing Washington. His outstanding record of service as Acting Mayor of Waterbury and as a State Senator make him the strongest, most credible candidate in this race," said Lawson.
"Earning Chairman Lawson’s support is both humbling and key to building the district-wide support base needed to run a winning campaign. I look forward to working with him and the rest of the Canaan RTC to ensure a Republican victory this November," said Caligiuri.

Wow - what a sleazeball move by Caligiuri, don't his handlers know that Lawson is stepping down from his perch as Chairman and also leaving the committee next month?

How desperate is he? He's trailing in money and delegates and now he's putting out spurious endorsement announcements?

What an implosion for the state senator from Waterbury.

Actually I think it's pathetic of Bernier to keep spreading lies. He was touting Lawson's endorsement when he didn't have it. Gee, sounds like a guy you can really trust.

So Bernier lies... and Caligiuri is the "sleazeball?" Interesting moral compass, Anonymous.
