Unofficial returns show State Senator Dennis Bradley locked in a close contest with party-endorsed Herron Gaston. Including absentee ballots Gaston leads 1744 to 1604.
City Councilman Marcus Brown and incumbent Jack Hennessy are also in a tight battle in Connecticut’s 127th State House District. Brown won the walk-in vote at all three precincts, Winthrop, Blackham and Read, but Hennessy cut into the margin deeply with absentee ballots.
Unofficial total results show Brown leading 571 to 567, clearly in recount territory.
