In the Uber-liberal Nutmeg State legislature remains in the hands of the Democrats, but the two upsets are interesting...
In the night’s biggest upset, Republican Gennaro Bizzaro of New Britain won the the 6th Senate District, defeating Rep. Rick Lopes, D-New Britain. The district includes the GOP-trending suburb of Berlin, where House Speaker Joseph Aresimowicz, a Democrat, barely won re-election last fall against a late entrant in the race.
Republican Joseph Zullo of East Haven won in the 99th House District, which was carried by Donald J.Trump in 2016, a harbinger of difficult times to come for the Democrats in a district they’ve owned for three decades. He defeated Democrat Josh Balter, who was cross-endorsed by the union-backedWorking Families Party.
