The state Republican Party is giving up on Hartford.
The state GOP is moving its headquarters from the capital city to the Hardware City after this year's election, according to Gary Schaffrick, one of the Republican state committee members.
Schaffrick said today that the party headquarters will be relocated on November 15 to a fifth floor office at 321 Ellis St. in New Britain.
The reason for the move? Money.
Schaffrick, a long-time Bristol political activist, said the party will save about $28,000 during the course of the lease by basing its operations in New Britain instead of Hartford.
