Republican Mark Greenberg has entered the race for Connecticut's 5th Congressional District, eight months after losing the GOP primary for the same seat.
Greenberg said Wednesday that he filed the required paperwork to run for the 2014 Republican nomination for the House of Representatives post now held by freshman Democratic Rep. Elizabeth Esty. He's the first person in the northwestern Connecticut district to announce his candidacy.
The Litchfield real estate developer also ran for the 5th District seat in the past two elections. He lost last year's GOP primary to Andrew Roraback.
Greenberg criticized the current members of Congress for not doing enough to reduce the national debt and for being more concerned about re-election than helping struggling families.
