Businessman and candidate for Congress Dan Debicella received the endorsement of the Independent Party of Connecticut and will be appearing on the ballot twice this November — on the Republican and Independent lines.

“Washington has done nothing but point fingers and as a result we are stuck with nothing but gridlock,” “I am proud to receive the endorsement of the Independent Party,” said Debicella, from Shelton.

“It is time we sent someone down to Washington who will represent the needs of the district and what’s best for Connecticut,” Debicella said.

“I am proud to be running a campaign of specific ideas on how to grow the middle-class, create more jobs, reduce healthcare costs and improve transportation in Connecticut," he said.

Debicella is a former two-term state senator from Shelton.
