One Senate seat is up for election in Connecticut, held by a Democratic incumbent. Voters will also choose representatives for five House seats, all of which are held by Democrats. And they will select a governor, an office currently held by a Democrat. See Connecticut’s primary results.
Gov. Dan Malloy (D), who opted to retire rather than run for a third term, leaves Connecticut with serious budget problems. That makes the state an attractive pickup opportunity for Republicans, who selected businessman Bob Stefanowski (R) as their candidate in a crowded primary. He faces former Senate candidate Ned Lamont (D).
Going into this election, Connecticut had 5 Democratic representatives . Here’s how each district leans politically, based on how it voted in the 2016 presidential election, with 2018 results as they come in.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Friday that a nominee from President Trump would get a vote in his chamber, while leading Democrats, including the party’s presidential nominee, Joe Biden, said a vote should not take place until the next president takes office.
