  • Manny Santos

Manny Santos (Republican Party) ran for the United States House of Representatives elections to represent Connecticut’s fifth congressional district. He lost in the general election on November 6, 2018.

In addition to running as a Republican Party candidate, Santos also ran with the Independent Party by cross-filing.

The former mayor of Meriden for a term supports President Donald Trump’s idea of ​​building a wall along the southern border of the country. He wants to repeal Obamacare. He favors a rollback of trade regulations.

At age five, Santos emigrated to the United States from a small town in Portugal, where his parents were subsistence farmers. Santos, his parents, and his three siblings moved to Hartford in 1973. After high school in Hartford, Santos joined the Marine Corps for four years, where his political ideology as a Republican froze. Trained as a fighter jet mechanic and skilled marksman, he served in Operation Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf. He remembers the sound of missiles flying towards his base at night. Santos became a member of his local Republican municipal committee, but was never interested in elected office. Then in 2013, everything changed when Meriden Republicans needed a placeholder.
