HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut’s 5th Congressional District race is expected once again to be an expensive battle, attracting millions of dollars in outside money.
National groups have already reserved more than $1 million in TV ads for the freshman incumbent and Greenberg has already loaned his campaign more than $600,000.
Greenberg says he’s challenging Esty to ask all third parties not to spend big cash on ads and mailers. Esty’s campaign says that’s a “deceptive ploy” from a deep-pocketed candidate intent on spending as much of his own money as it takes.
