Today’s Greenwich Time indicates that the counts at the end of Wednesday were Foley 552,106 Malloy 543,682 and Debicella 96,929 Himes 95,841. It is curious how the authorities can call both these races for the Democrats while each Republican has more votes. They must use projections of the votes from the late-reporting precincts and the absentees. These races were very close.
Obama’s surgical invention/visit to Bridgeport on the Saturday before the election likely won both races for the Dems. Bridgeport is a Democrat city with a very large African-American population of Obama supporters.
