Connecticut – 2016 Election Results

    mmw_vote_102208_articleThe national election results are well known to the citizens of Connecticut; President – Donald Trump (R), U.S. Senator – Richard Blumenthal (D), U.S. Representatives – John Larson (1st), Joe Courtney (2nd),Rosa DeLauro (3rd), James Himes (4th) and Elizabeth Esty (5th).
However, many state residents fail to know the impact that the November elections had upon the make-up of the Connecticut General Assembly. As concerns continue to grow over the state budget and economic growth, the voters of Connecticut placed greater control of the General Assembly into the hands of the Republicans. In an historic event, the thirty-six member Senate moved from a Democratic majority with 21 seats, to a tie of 18 seats between the two parties. The State House remained under Democratic control, but lost eight seats, for a final tally of 79 Democrats to 72 Republicans. The gain of seats by the Republicans in both chambers is expected to have a significant impact on legislation coming out of the 2017 General Assembly.
