NEW LONDON — The open race for the 20th District State Senator, created by Paul Formica’s retirement, pitched Republican Jerry Labriola, Jr. against three-time candidate Martha Marx (D).
In Old Lyme, Marx gained 2,258 votes to Labriola’s 2,054. The 20th District does not include Lyme.
Labriola has now conceded to Marx and so we asked Marx for her reaction to her victory. She responded by email, saying, “”I am honored and humbled to have been elected the next state senator from the 20th district.”
She concluded, “I cannot wait to get to the business of making our communities thrive and bringing the voices of the 20th district to Hartford.”
