As League reported Weston vote to Associated Press, in summary:
Sweep of the State-wide offices, U.S. Senate, House for Democrats.
Democrats win for Governor/LtGov and we think tall he constitutional offices;
CT House and Senate return to Democratic Party majority control.
As League watched races specifically for Weston as well as overall:
Weston will have a new State Senator in the 26th Weston will have a new State Representative in the 135th
State Senator Tony Hwang was returned to office.
ELSEWHERE: Lots of debates by LWV organizations elsewhere involving 26th District Senate, example above.
