Simmons (insert wrestling-themed verb here) McMahon in Waterford


Rob Simmons no doubt toasted Waterford with one of his primary night martinis.

The former congressman took Waterford from Linda McMahon by a something to something ratio in Tuesday's GOP senate primary.

Sorry, I don't "do" math. I play the English major card early and indeed often. But if you can figure out ratios and such, by all means math-on to your heart's content.

All told, the Waterford tally was Simmons 500, McMahon 185, with Peter Schiff in third with 101.

In the other marquee match up Tuesday night, the Democratic nomination for governor, the town went to Dan Malloy 622-347 over Ned Lamont.

Malloy, which sounds like the name of an excellent novel by Samuel Beckett, cleaned up in eastern Connecticut, as expected.
