During last year's mayoral election in Bridgeport, state Rep. Chris Caruso accused establishment Democrats of running a corrupt city. His complaints included the charge that the election was stolen from him; he lost to Bill Finch, the party's preferred candidate, by 270 votes in the September primary.
Today, the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled unanimously against Caruso, refusing to order a new election.
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.
