Former state representative warms up Roraback crowd

From reporter Bob Miller…. 

Former state Rep. Brian Mattiello served as the master of ceremonies for Andrew Roraback’s campaign event Tuesday night at the Backstage restaurant in Torrington.

Roraback, the 5th Congressional District GOP hopeful from Goshen, has known Mattiello for years.

“I’m going in pumped,” Mattiello told the crowd. “I’m breaking the rule I tell every politician. I only came with one speech tonight.”

Supporters of Roraback began filling up the Backstage shortly before the polls closed at 8. The place was adorned with lots of red and blue balloons.
