Conn. (WTNH) — In the second U.S. House district, long-time Congressman Joe Courtney is facing a primary challenger.
The second district covers all of eastern Connecticut from the shoreline to the Massachusetts border. Courtney has held on to that district for eight terms.
But a fresh face is now vying for the seat. Anthony Dilizia is a 25-year-old living in Stonington. His campaign describe him as a “proud, gay United States Army Veteran.”
Dilizia has not officially filed to run yet but plans to do so soon.
Courtney is also facing a Republican challenger: State Rep. Mike France. He filed to run back in February.
