Cheryl Lounsbury to Seek House Seat in November Election
Southington Patch - almost 5 years
Republicans are mounting an effort to take the 81st House District back from long-time Democratic incumbent Bruce “Zeke” Zalaski and the challenge lies in the hands of one of the recently elected Town Council members. Cheryl Lounsbury, the former chairwoman of the Southington Republican Town Committee, will announce her intentions to run for the district seat this Saturday at Move Over Martha. She cited her experience in government and concerns regarding the focus of House Democrats as the reasons behind her decision. “I’m excited about running for this State House seat,” she said. “My previous experience working for Congresswoman Nancy Johnson allowed me to work with both the state and federal government." The announcement comes a little more than a week after Zalaski and fellow Democrat Joseph Aresimowicz clashed with Republican Sen. Joseph Markley and Republican Rep. Rob Sampson during a legislative breakfast hosted by the Southington Chamber of Commerce at the Manor Inn. ...

Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Nancy Johnson
    LATE_ADULTHOOD
  • 2013
    Age 78
    In 2013, Johnson was a signatory to an amicus curiae brief submitted to the Supreme Court in support of same-sex marriage during the Hollingsworth v. Perry case.
    More Details Hide Details Johnson is married to Theodore Johnson, an obstetrics and gynaecology (OBGYN) physician; and has three adult daughters.
  • 2007
    Age 72
    In October 2007, Johnson endorsed former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani's bid for the Republican presidential nomination.
    More Details Hide Details
    Following her career in Congress, in 2007 Johnson became a resident fellow at Harvard University's Institute of Politics.
    More Details Hide Details She also serves as co-chair of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a public policy think tank.
  • 2006
    Age 71
    In the second quarter of 2006 she raised almost $800,000, and had cash on hand, as of June 30, 2006, of $2.6 million.
    More Details Hide Details In late October, Chris Murphy had a slight lead, and heading into the election it was projected that he would win by four points. Johnson ultimately lost the race in November to Chris Murphy by 12 points; the only House incumbent to suffer a worse defeat was John Hostettler (IN-08). Local speculation in the Hartford Courant was that Johnson's negative TV ads, which accused Murphy of coddling sex offenders and drug dealers, may have proven counterproductive. Johnson won only six of the district's 41 towns, losing many areas that had reliably supported her in the past. For instance, she lost badly in New Britain, an area she had represented for 30 years at both the federal and state level. She had failed to carry New Britain in her last two elections.
    Johnson had a large cash advantage over her challenger. In April 2006, Johnson reported that she had raised $436,000 in the first quarter of the year, with 60% of that coming from PACs, and 56% from contributors from outside Connecticut.
    More Details Hide Details
    In April 2006, Johnson became the target of a negative ad campaign run by a political action committee, MoveOn.org, which alleged ties to disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff and former Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX).
    More Details Hide Details Johnson responded with her own advertising campaign dismissing the charges and strongly attacking Murphy, accusing him of not disavowing the MoveOn attack ads.
    In the November 2006 general election, Johnson faced Democrat Chris Murphy, a state senator originally elected from the First District town of Southington, Connecticut who now lives in Cheshire.
    More Details Hide Details Murphy, 33, has been outspoken in his criticism of Johnson's role in authoring Medicare Part D legislation and for her support of Bush's Iraq policy.
    On May 15, 2006, Johnson announced she will submit legislation to waive penalties for those who miss deadlines to enroll in Medicare Part D, reacting to widespread criticism of the Johnson-authored program.
    More Details Hide Details Her bill is supported by the AARP. With the retirement of Ways and Means Committee chairman Bill Thomas (R-CA) at the end of his term, Johnson was a possible candidate to replace him as chairman if Republicans were to retain the House and Johnson retain her seat in the November elections, but that did not happen. In 1983, Johnson was one of the original congressional members of the United States House Select Committee on Children, Youth, and Families. Connecticut is a center of the pharmaceutical industry with Pfizer and Bayer operating major facilities in the state. According to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, Johnson has been one of the leading Congressional recipients of contributions from the pharmaceutical industry, receiving $534,830 in related contributions since 2000.
    One of Johnson's central issues is health care. She was one of the authors of the Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit program, which took effect in 2006.
    More Details Hide Details
    In 2006, Johnson attracted considerable controversy after voting against a Republican budget reconciliation bill that passed the House by two votes.
    More Details Hide Details She was one of 14 moderate Republicans that crossed party lines to side with Democrats against it. Johnson is a strong supporter of Republican policy on health care and the Iraq War, but opposed the Bush energy agenda, including oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) refuge. She has received favorable marks from such groups as the National Education Association and the Sierra Club.
  • 2005
    Age 70
    In 2005, Johnson supported the White House plan to partially privatize Social Security, and voted for a measure sponsored by then-Majority Leader Tom DeLay that would have weakened House Ethics rules.
    More Details Hide Details
    The ACU gave Johnson's 2005 voting record 40 points out of 100; the liberal Americans for Democratic Action gave her 35 points.
    More Details Hide Details In general, she was moderate-to-liberal on social issues and conservative on economic ones. Johnson is a member of several socially moderate Republican groups including The Wish List, The Republican Main Street Partnership, Republicans for Choice, the Republican Majority for Choice, and Republicans for Environmental Protection, now known as ConservAmerica, although she has supported many elements of President George W. Bush's agenda and the agenda of conservative House leaders.
  • 2004
    Age 69
    In 2004, she defeated Democrat Theresa Gerratana, getting 60% of the vote.
    More Details Hide Details Johnson is a moderate Republican, like most Republicans from Connecticut. She called herself "an independent voice in Washington", although she frequently supported the mainstream Republican agenda. Some nonpartisan observers such as National Journal rated her near the ideological midpoint in the House, although others, like the American Conservative Union (ACU) rated her as a moderate conservative.
  • 2003
    Age 68
    In 2003, Johnson voted with the House Democrats to oppose Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.
    More Details Hide Details The bill was passed by a large majority 281–142 on October 2, 2003.
  • 2002
    Age 67
    In 2002, Johnson's New Britain-based district was merged with the Waterbury-based 5th District of Democratic Congressman James H. Maloney.
    More Details Hide Details While the new district retained Maloney's district number, its geography and demographics slightly favored Johnson. Johnson won the general election with 54% of the vote.
  • 2000
    Age 65
    Had Al Gore won the 2000 presidential election, Johnson was widely considered Governor John G. Rowland's frontrunner to serve in the United States Senate for at least the first two years of Gore's running mate Joe Lieberman's term (Lieberman had been reelected to the Senate at the same time as the presidential election).
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1998
    Age 63
    In 1998, Johnson voted for two of the four articles of impeachment then-President Bill Clinton—the only member of the Connecticut delegation to support Clinton's impeachment.
    More Details Hide Details
    She won in 1998, again against Koskoff, with 59% of the vote, and got 63% of the vote in 2000 against Paul Valenti.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1996
    Age 61
    She won narrowly in her re-election bid in 1996, defeating Democrat Charlotte Koskoff 50%–49%.
    More Details Hide Details She had won re-elections prior to 2002 with 59% to 74% of the vote. She attributed her decreased percentage to the time she had spent on the House ethics panel, dealing with ethics allegations against Speaker Newt Gingrich, which prevented her from getting around in her district.
  • FORTIES
  • 1982
    Age 47
    Johnson was elected to the House of Representatives in 1982 with 52 percent of the vote, defeating Democrat William E. Curry Jr.
