Greenwich resident Linda McMahon has been unsuccessful in her second run for the United States Senate. No official statements have been made by the candidates, but the AP and the major networks have all called the race for U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy.
CBS News has also projected that U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, a Cos Cob resident, has won his race for a third term against Republican Steve Obsitnik.
Gov. Dannel Malloy, a strong supporter of Mr. Murphy, has released a statement on his victory, saying, “Good for Chris Murphy, good for Connecticut. Tonight’s victory by Chris shows that we have elections in Connecticut, not auctions. Chris is a smart, decent, thoughtful guy, and he’s exactly the right kind of person to represent the people of Connecticut in the U.S. Senate. He knows that although we’ve begun to turn things around in Connecticut, choices that are made in Washington DC impact all of us. I’m confident that when it comes time to make those choices in the U.S. Senate, Chris will make the right ones for Connecticut.”
