Elizabeth Esty Upsets Donovan to Win 5th District Congress Nod (8/15/12)
Elizabeth Esty upset Connecticut Speaker of the House Chris Donovan to win the Democratic primary for Connecticut's 5th District Congress seat Tuesday night. It was a stunning defeat for Donovan, once considered a shoo-in for the Democratic nomination and a favorite in the general election. Esty will face Republican Andrew Roraback, who defeated Lisa Wilson-Foley in the Republican Primary. "People are looking for common sense approaches that are not based on ideology," she said. "They don't care what the letter is after the name on the ballot." Esty's victory is also a victory for Emily's List, which supports female pro-choice Democrats running for Congress.
