On an otherwise bad day for Connecticut Republicans, Sen. Heather Somers won easily, which could set her up for a bid for the Republican nomination for governor in 2022.
Thirty-six years ago, Connecticut Republicans also had a presidential incumbent at the top of their ticket seeking a second term. That worked out much better for them than this time.
I expect large turnout driven by Trump fervor — more against than for — will make it a good day for Democrats. Look for the party to expand its 22-14 Senate and 91-60 House majorities.
Republicans would be making a mistake if they try to get in front of this train.
Rep. Dubitsky faces Democrat Kate Donnelly in his re-election bid. She believes in science. That alone is enough to make her the better choice.
Republicans, with President Trump being the chief alarmist, have warned of massive fraud. There is no evidence to support the hysteria.

I see no political path for Republicans to gain control of either chamber, but if they could erode the size of Democratic majorities it could influence some major policy decisions.
Drive through interior New London and much of Windham counties and you will see plenty of Trump signs. And there are plenty of votes behind them.
Finding an excuse not to debate would be a monumental mistake by Joe Biden. It would serve as confirmation that he is seriously slipping mentally. I would be shocked if it happened.
Barbara Dalio was remarkably unassuming. She did not reek of rich. If she had met me for a business lunch at a Chili’s Restaurant, she would not have looked out of place.
In dismissing a lawsuit brought by Republican candidates, state Supreme Court Chief Justice Richard Robinson basically said, “What are you doing here?”
Popular in polls, requiring that everyone undergo an FBI background check before purchasing a firearm would seem low-hanging fruit in the gun-control fight, but the Republican Senate still opposes it.
In the wake of a pandemic and the drive to address long-standing racial inequality, all the angst over tolls seems rather trivial.
This year Republicans nominated a 29-year-old, conspiracy-following candidate who would seem a far better fit for a deep red state than the purplish Second District.
So many have fought to hard for the opportunity to vote. That makes it all the more troubling that 100 million don't bother.

The pandemic is inhibiting the ability of challengers to gain the name recognition they need to make a serious run against state legislative incumbents.
