TORRINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) -- The day after a big primary win and suddenly Republicans at the National level know who Andrew Roraback is.
"We've received a number of calls from national leaders today," Roraback said.
State Senator Roraback is now facing Democratic State Representative Elizabeth Esty in an election some pundits are classifying as a toss up, and because this race features no incumbent, both national parties that want to pick up a seat are likely willing to send money to make it happen.
"Do you expect national support when it comes to money," asked News 8's Erin Cox.
"Well there is no question, we are going to be reaching out for support from every place we can find it," said Roraback.
News 8 visited Esty's campaign headquarters in Cheshire, but we were told the candidate was not doing any interviews Wednesday.
"Lets move forward together towards November with a spirited serious focus on the issues," Esty said after her win Tuesday night.
However, Roraback's strategy isn't just to appeal to his Republican base. He plans to go after the unaffiliated voters and even Democrats his opponent may be counting on.
"There are a lot of disaffected Democrats in this district and I think our message is going to resonate with people across the political spectrum," said Roraback.
For those who might not know much about Esty or Roraback now, with the national groups expected to buy TV time, by November you will.
