CT-02: Unofficial Results

From The Courant:
Courtney, Joe (D)...121,321 (50.04%)
Simmons, Rob (R)...121,151 (49.96%)

The margin is 170 votes.

All 149 precincts are finally reporting. Now we wait for the recount. Again, the Courtney folks are pretty sure they have this, but we'll see.

Not just recounts though. There will be challenging of "provisional" ballots and I'm gonna bet some court battles too. And heavy scrutinization of the new voting machines throughout CD2.

Seems the 170 margin does not include all the absentee ballots, particularly from strong Simmons communities.

That aside, it has fallen under the mandatory recount according to the Courant so we are look at at least a week for a winner.

This is going to be ugly, very ugly, but Courtney's going to come out on top. This district will be Democrat now for a long, long time.

Btw, how do you have 100% of precints reporting, and not have the asbentee ballots counted.

I have to assume there are a bunch of military ballots as well. I think Simmons holds on.

Courtney is holding a news conference now - presumably to announce victory.
