Stamford’s delegation to Hartford stays mostly blue

STAMFORD — All incumbent Democratic state representatives whose districts are wholly in Stamford won re-election on Tuesday, and a House seat covering parts of Stamford and Greenwich turned blue.

Turnout in Stamford was about 52 percent overall in Tuesday’s election.

State Representative Hubert Delany, D-144; Corey Paris, D-145; David Michel, D-146; Matt Blumenthal, D-147; and Daniel Fox, D-148, each won 60 percent or more of the vote in their respective races, according to unofficial results released on the Secretary of State’s website.

In the 149th State House District, which includes parts of Stamford and Greenwich, Democrat Rachel Khanna unseated Republican Kimberly Fiorello. Khanna narrowly won with around 51 percent of the vote.

That means all but one state representative whose districts include parts of Stamford will be Democrats.

Due to the redistribution, the 125th State House District has expanded into northeast Stamford. Republican incumbent Tom O’Dea secured around 54 percent of the vote on Tuesday to defeat Democrat Victor Alvarez.
