 It looks like the results are in and political newcomer Brandon McGee has handily won a victory for the 5th District legislative seat, that had been the subject of court challenges and several recounts.  McGee had a substantial lead over union leader and Windsor Democratic Town Chair Leo Canty.  The numbers I was given as of about 10PM showed McGee with roughly a 150 vote lead over Canty.

It appears that all votes were cast by voters that were alive at the time. No deceased votes are in question at this time

Congratulations Brandon.

What impresses me the most about Brandon is his preseverance and the hard work he did to win.He is 28 years old and I believe has a great future ahead of him.The Hartford HDTC and especially the 5th district should be congradulated for their hard work and ought to be proud to have pulled off this upset.

Well said Bruce! Thank goodness we kept a state rep voice who will make Hartford a priority with the energy and enthusiasm to push a legislative agenda that benefits the capital city.
