Greenberg Redux. Three-Time Republican Congressional Hopeful Launches Bid for Comptroller.
He’s back. Litchfield real estate developer and persistent congressional candidate Mark Greenberg is running for State Comptroller. The Republican ran for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010, 2012, and 2014. Greenberg was the party’s nominee in his last bid, losing to incumbent Democrat and Cheshire millionaire Elizabeth Esty. He lost primary challenges in 2010 and 2012. The 2012 primary was notably brutal, with Greenberg and Lisa Wilson Foley, the wealthy Simsbury Republican who later pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations.
Greenberg provided damning evidence in former Governor John G. Rowland’s 2014 criminal trial for campaign finance violations, the same ones that caused Wilson Foley so much trouble.
