I am very happy to announce that we have reached our fundraising goal and no longer need any contributions!  Thank you everyone!

Press Release:

Southington, CT –  Republican candidate for State Senate 16th District,  Representative Rob Sampson has announced that his campaign has reached its fundraising goal and has reached the threshold for qualifying for the Citizens’ Elections Program. The 16th District includes Southington, Wolcott, Prospect and parts of Cheshire and Waterbury. Sampson is a Realtor and insurance agent and the current State Representative for Connecticut’s 80th District (Wolcott & Southington).

I want to offer my most sincere thanks to the many supporters who helped us reach this goal. I have been overwhelmed by the positive response our campaign and more importantly, our message, has received.  It’s been difficult serving in the minority, especially watching the poor decisions being made that have hurt our state’s economy and attractiveness as a place to live.   I am up for the challenge and will continue to call for a more prudent tact as we go forward.  We need to get back to core american principles of hard work, mutual respect, and common sense.

Sampson has been running a dynamic campaign attending many local events and organizing several “meet the candidate” forums & fundraisers. He is also dedicated to meeting as many voters as possible personally during his campaign. Known as an avid reader and student of American history, Sampson often applies the lessons learned from our own past to events we are currently facing.

Sampson is a lifelong Republican who believes in limited government, personal responsibility and fiscal accountability. He is also a strong supporter of our Second Amendment Rights.
