Roraback Wins 5th District Republican Convention. Convention
State Senator Andrew Roraback has scored a third ballot victory over Lisa Wilson-Foley and Justin Bernier in the hotly contested 5th CD nomination race. On the third ballot, Roraback won 157 votes, Wilson-Foley 114, and Bernier 29.
The result is a bitter blow to the prestige of Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, who made a public declaration of support for Wilson-Foley and nominated her.
The state convention begins this evening at the Connecticut Convention Center.
