Connecticut's Democrats, GOP claim victory on night of history and upsets

Connecticut voters produced a night of firsts and upsets Tuesday as women won mayoral races for the first time in New Haven, Norwich and Derby, Democrats made major gains in Fairfield County and Republicans won in the Democratic communities of Ansonia, Bristol, Meriden and New Britain.

State Sen. Toni N. Harp won the New Haven mayoralty, a victory that puts an ally of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy as the top official in the city most crucial to his re-election in 2014. In upsets, Democrats won mayoral races in Stamford and Norwalk.
