The chairman of Connecticut’s Republican Party said Wednesday that he had asked a congressional candidate to step down after it was revealed that he had communicated with a close ally of Rudy Giuliani currently tied to the congressional impeachment hearings.

J.R. Romano tweeted Wednesday afternoon that he had asked Rob Hyde, a candidate running in the crowded GOP primary for Connecticut’s 5th Congressional District, to withdraw from the race, calling his campaign a “distraction.”

“I have asked Rob Hyde to end his bid for Congress. His campaign is a distraction for the Democrats to raise money and falsely label all Republicans with his antics. In my view he is not helping other Republican candidates or @realDonaldTrump win,” Romano tweeted.
