As a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representative from 1983 to 2007, Nancy Johnson is a well-known figure in Connecticut politics. 

In Congress, she represented the Nutmeg State's 6th and 5th congressional districts.

Had Al Gore defeated George W. Bush in the 2000 presidential election, Johnson was widely seen as Republican Governor John G. Rowland's first choice to serve the remainder of Gore's running mate, Joe Liberman's, term.

Organizations like the American Conservative Union considered Johnson a moderate conservative. Despite a voting record that fit her district, Johnson lost by 12 points in the 2006 midterm elections.
