At least one chapter of the Ernest Newton story will come to a close today when his successor is elected.
Six candidates, five Democrats and one Republican, are running. The endorsed Democrat is city councilor Ed Gomes, who is expected to win. Turnout should be low because of the odd timing of the election (state law forbids a special legislative election on the same day as a municipal election).
The 23rd Senate District is reliably Democratic and encompasses most of Bridgeport and a slice of Stratford.
I'll post results as soon as I get them.
