The veto-proof majority has ended for the [Connecticut] Senate Democrats as Republican Robert Russo III won a special election Tuesday night in a district formerly represented by Democratic Senator Bill Finch.
Russo defeated Democrat Thomas A. Mulligan Jr. in an important race because it tipped the balance to 23 Democrats and 13 Republicans in the 36-member Senate.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
