While Republicans nationally have maintained their majority in the U.S. House of Representatives aided by redrawn districts, the GOP in Connecticut has lost every congressional race in the past three elections and failed to win a redistricting plan in 2012 aimed at reversing its fortunes.
In the latest showdown between the two factions fighting for the soul of the GOP, both sides could claim victory in Tuesday's primaries, with tea party candidates winning races in Connecticut and Florida and "establishment" Republicans prevailing elsewhere in Florida and Wisconsin.
"We've run some pretty good candidates," said Shays, who also lost a Republican primary for Senate in 2010. "The problem is when you start to lose and lose again it discourages good candidates from coming forward because they begin to think they can't win no matter what they do. It's almost a self-fulfilling prophecy."
