Perusing the Federal Election Commission website this morning, which is always fun, I discovered that a Republican challenger to U.S. Rep. John Larson has emerged.
The East Hartford Democrat, one of the most powerful in the House, faces a challenge from a Republican named Mark Zydanowicz.
Zydanowicz has not yet filed any campaign finance paperwork, but my pal Google helped me learn he is the marketing manager at Guida's Dairy Products.
He sent in the paperwork to the FEC on March 15. His campaign committee will be called "Z for Congress," which rolls off the tongue a bit easier than Zydanowicz for Congress. As a marketing manager, it's no surprise he's on top of that.
Zydanowicz is a captain in the U.S. Army Reserves, too. He apparently helped in the rebuilding of Baghdad.
He's also married and lives in West Hartford, but given the unfortunate nuttiness of some people these days I think I'll leave the link for that information off of this blog. He has children, too, I learn from the Hartford Courant's birth notices.
Update at 1:20 p.m.: He's slated to be at Monday's Republican town committee meeting in Bristol at 7:30 p.m. at the Board of Education. So anyone who wants to meet him, he'll be there.
He also has a website that's not yet unveiled. It's at zforcongress.org.
