10:45 I’ll probably have to stop soon, as returns are down to a trickle. Fun night! More wrap-up tomorrow. Check here for more results, and post them here if you’ve got ’em.
10:38 The West Hartford Blog has results for town council there.
10:32 Results have slowed down to a crawl. MLN says that Democrats have won big in Darien. Yes. Darien.
10:24 The size of Jeff Wright’s win in Newington is pretty amazing. Also, note that results did not come in any faster with the new machines. Oh, well.
10:15 It’s great to have the Republicans posting up-to-the-minute results. Democrats could do that, too, should they ever feel inclined. HINT.
10:07 So we’ve got at least a few upsets: one in Vernon, one in Stonington, one right here in Enfield, one in Newington. But no big changes in the cities like last time, when a lot of medium-sized cities went GOP. We’re seeing some pickups for Dems in smaller towns, still, and it looks like the GOP is making a comeback of sorts in the older suburbs–which have been Dem in previous years.
The maps, when they’re done, will tell all.
More results soon.

Bridgeport is on the verge of great things major economic development, new and improved schools and neighborhood revitalization. We have a great opportunity over the next few years to move Bridgeport forward and usher in a new era of growth and prosperity.

There are many challenges facing us too, but we will face them together and move beyond them together.
