NORWALK - At least two people have come forward accusing the congressional campaign of a local Republican of forging petition signatures.

Easton Republican Tom Herrmann is running for Rep. Jim Himes? (D-Conn.) seat in Congress. Hermann?s campaign says it has collected more than 2,500 signatures, which would be enough to force a primary with state Sen. Dan DiBicella.

One of those alleging her signature was forced is the wife of a Norwalk elected official.

The campaign denies any wrongdoing.

The primary between Herrmann and DiBicella is set for Aug. 10.
