A recount Wednesday gave Democrat Sarah Keitt of Fairfield a 10-vote victory over Republican Meghan McCloat in the 134th House District, flipping an open Republican seat and giving Democrats a 98-53 majority.
The seat is currently held by Rep. Laura Devlin, R-Fairfield, who was the nominee for lieutenant governor on the losing ticket led by the Republican gubernatorial nominee, Bob Stefanowski.
Gov. Ned Lamont carried Fairfield with 61% of the vote.
Keitt won the recount 5,143 to 5,133. Her margin of victory, however, was not the closest this year.
A recount Monday gave Democrat Chris Poulos a one-vote victory over Republican Tony Morrison in the 81st House District of Southington, flipping another open Republican seat.
Democrats made a net gain of one seat, by capturing four Republican seats and losing three seats. In the Senate, Democrats will have a 24-12 majority, also a net gain of one seat.
The new term begins in January.
