Connecticut Municipal Elections. Stewart Stuns in New Britain. Martin Beats Fedele.
The night belongs to Republican Erin Stewart. The New Britain Republican has defeated incumbent Tim O’Brien decisively in the race for mayor of that overwhelmingly Democratic city.
In Stamford, Democrat David Martin has defeated Republican former lieutenant governor Michael Fedele. Martin lost the same race in 2009.
Danbury’s Mark Boughton has won a thumping re-election bid and can now concentrate on running for governor.
Republicans hold Enfield, a town with its own intense brand of politics.
A surprise in Windsor. Republicans have taken the board of education.
Simsbury’s first selectman Mary Glassman, who has lost bids for governor and lieutenant governor, has won re-election with 53% of the vote. Republicans have won a 4-2 majority on the board of selectmen. Look for them to challenge the slippery Glassman going forward.
