Flexer nabs senate seat; one Senate race remains too close to call
State Rep. Mae Flexer of Killingly, D-44th District, has won a seat in the state Senate.
Her narrow win in the 29th District means the seat vacated by Senate President Pro Tem Donald E. Williams Jr. will remain held by a Democrat. She defeated Republican John French.
With Flexer’s win, Democrats will hold 20 of the 36 seats in the Senate, with one race remaining too close to call.
In that race, Democratic Sen. Dante Bartolomeo of Meriden was ahead by a small margin, but her Republican challenger, Len Suzio, had refused to concede by 11 a.m. Wednesday.
