This is my district, a fight between a rich Norm Needleman throwing massive amounts of his own money to beat a woman with no money and a refusal to play that game. Melissa Ziobron may just be the most honest and hardest worker I have ever voted for. Melissa served 3 terms and never missed a day. She truly cares for those she represents.

 

33rd Senate District race is too close to call

The key race between Democrat Norm Needleman and state Rep. Melissa Ziobron for the 33rd Senate District was too close to call late Tuesday night.

With nine of the 12 towns in the district reporting, Needleman unofficially had 18,907 votes and Ziobron 18,523. The race will be instrumental in determining which party controls the Senate, which has been tied 18-18.

Needleman, 67, is serving his fourth term as first selectman of Essex. Ziobron, 47, is completing her third term representing the 38th House District of Colchester, East Haddam and East Hampton. Incumbent Republican Sen. 

The 33rd covers Chester, Clinton, Colchester, Deep River, East Haddam, East Hampton, Essex, Haddam, Lyme, Old Saybrook, Portland and Westbrook. Art Linares, who made an unsuccessful attempt to win the party nomination for state treasurer and moved out of the district, did not seek re-election.

As of noon today there still is no winner, 125 votes separate the two.

Does not matter.

The state of Connecticut lost big time yesterday.

I wonder how many companies will be holding board meetings over the next couple of weeks about leaving the state.

The exodus of people with means (and money) will increase.

 

The state is circling the drain and Lamont will just keep flushing.

Our old District covered all of Greenwich, North Stamford and part of Darien I believe. That seat has been held by Scott Frantz for like five terms and it has been in the hands of the GOP since 1930. 

 

Frantz lost last night on 600 votes out of ~42,000 to a woman we know. Not a friend, just a family that went to same school. The is a PhD, quick, attractive and about as far Left and some of our resident lefties. Frantz took Greenwich town by 1,000 votes, she smoked him in North Stamford.

 

She beat him on healthcare and his involvement in the passage of PA13-3 after Sandy Hook. I dealt with Scott quite a bit back then and the guy did his best to thread the needle between a “not one inch” position and the Hartford Dems’ seeking full prohibition on AWs with no grandfathering. 

 

Knowing the fellow mommies at that school and in the district, I have no doubt that she worked the women and the women worked their men. 

 

There might be a recall but if he loses, Frantz is most definitely a victim of the revenge of the upper-middle class, educated white women.

Ned is a limousine liberal, I am not sure what talent he is going to bring to the table. The Hartford bosses are going to eat his lunch and then convince him he’s not really hungry.
