Esty campaign to get help from California lawmaker, other Latinos
Rep. Elizabeth Esty, D-5th District, who has been challenged by Republican businessman Mark Greenberg, will campaign in Meriden Thursday with Rep. Loretta Sanchez, a California lawmaker who is considered a moderate Democrat.
Sanchez is Mexican-American. Other state elected officials who are also Latino will attend two Hispanic community events in Meriden with Esty.
They include Sen. Dante Bartolomeo of Meriden, D-13th; State Rep. Hilda Santiago of Meriden, D-84th; Meriden Councilman Miguel Castro; and Meriden Democratic Town Committee Chair Millie Torres-Ferguson.
One event will take place at Casa Boricua De Meriden, a community center that serves the Puerto Rican and Hispanic community. The other will take place at a senior center.
Esty narrowly beat Republican Andrew Roraback in 2012, thanks in part to the turnout of minority voters in the 5th District.
