Tempers flared outside the polls at North Stratfield School in Fairfield Tuesday afternoon as police were called to settle things down between a Chris DeSanctis supporter and Kim Fawcett Tuesday afternoon, doingitlocal.com reported.
Initial police radio reports said it was Tea Party members causing a disturbance with Kim Fawcett and voters, but appeared to be just one person and Rep. Fawcett.
The supporter would not comment. Fawcett said it was “one Democrat and one Tea Party Republican had exchanged words and it got a little feisty but its all good.”
Police said the DeSanctis supporter was told to keep the 75-foot distance from the entrance required by law. The DeSanctis supporter left the scene a short time later. Candidates quickly got back to greeting voters.
DeSanctis and Fawcett are candidates for state representative for the 133rd District.
Voting at Old Stratfield was as brisk as the temperatures today.
