Hwang tops Fawcett in race for State Senate

Will succeed McKinney

State Rep. Tony Hwang is moving from the General Assembly to the State Senate.

The Republican, who represented the 134th District, beat Kim Fawcett, who represented the 133rd District, in a race to replace John McKinney, who did not seek re-election to the 28th State Senate District. McKinney unsuccessfully sought the Republican gubernatorial nomination, losing a primary to Tom Foley.

Fawcett conceded the race around 10:15 p.m. Tuesday.

Speaking to Republicans at Flipside, a Fairfield restaurant, Hwang said voters recognized he “took the high road” and rewarded him for it.

Hwang thanked McKinney and former Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell, both of whom endorsed him.

Easton backed Hwang 1,825 to 1,124. He took Weston, 807-654.

Fairfield results are not yet official, amid problems at polling places with ballots and machines.
