Bridgeport resident David Walker’s bid to win the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor appears to have come up short in a close contest with party-endorsed Penny Bacchiochi and Heather Somers. The race is too close to call between the latter two with Walker just behind them, according to unofficial statewide tallies. The winner of the LG race will be part of a general election ticket with Tom Foley against Dan Malloy and Nancy Wyman.
