Democratic State Senator Marilyn Moore riding huge pluralities in Bridgeport has won another two-year term defeating Republican Elaine Hammers in the split city-suburban 22nd Senatorial District, according to unofficial returns.
Unofficial returns show Moore won Bridgeport precincts such as Central 1607 to 436, Wilbur Cross 1675 to 132, Park City Magnet 1213 to 305, Winthrop 1806 to 754. Hammers won the traditional Republican towns of Trumbull and Monroe. At Middlebrook School in Trumbull it was Hammers 1055, Moore 639. At Monroe Elementary Hammers 1055, Moore 639.
In a high-profile presidential cycle the Moore-Hammers battle was the one competitive legislative battle to watch given the diversity of the district.
Moore won the seat two years ago defeating incumbent Anthony Musto in a primary on her way to a general election win. She defeated City Council President Tom McCarthy in an August primary.
