Farmington, CT - Bill Wadsworth, Republican candidate for the 5th State Senate District, has received the endorsement of the Independent Party of Connecticut. The caucus voted unanimously to support Wadsworth at their Thursday night caucus at the Maron Hotel in Danbury.
“I thank the Independent Party for their endorsement, and I am honored to have their support,” said Wadsworth. “As I go door to door throughout the 5th District it becomes more and more clear that voters are fed up with partisan politics and one party rule in our state government. This is another important step for my campaign to help bring new leadership to Hartford.”
Because the 5th District had not had a candidate on the Independent Party line in previous elections, Wadsworth had to collect 346 signatures from registered voters in the district to gain access to the line before receiving the endorsement. As a result his name will appear on two different lines on the ballot in November. Once on the Republican line, and once one the Independent line as well.
The Independent Party of Connecticut was founded to provide voters an alternative political party that is dedicated to ensuring “Open and honest government, with realistic objectives.”
