Republicans endorse Heather Somers for re-election to 18th District state Senate seat

Groton — Republican delegates to the party's convention unanimously endorsed incumbent Sen. Heather Somers this week for the 18th District state Senate seat.

Somers was elected to the seat — which covers Groton, Stonington, North Stonington, Preston, Griswold, Voluntown, Sterling and Plainfield — in 2016.

"I am incredibly proud that in just over one year in office, I have challenged business-as-usual in Hartford, brought greater accountability to public institutions by exposing wrongdoing and demanding reform and delivered results for eastern Connecticut," Somers said in a news release.

She was unopposed at the Republican Convention on Monday and will not face a primary in August.

The Democratic candidates vying for the seat are Bob Statchen and Dan Kelley.
