Election 2012: Windsor Results

Incumbents re-elected to state capitol; McGee wins redrawn fifth district seat; Obama, Murphy, Larson win big in Windsor.

Windsor followed suit with much of the state in Tuesday's general election, with democrats winning big in almost every race.

Windsor residents voted heavily in favor of President Barack Obama, casting 11,461 votes for the president and 4,305 for challenger Mitt Romney.

Similarly, Windsor voters chose Chris Murphy over Linda McMahon in the race for Senator Joe Lieberman's soon-to-be-vacated seat.

Murphy received over 10,000 votes in Windsor to McMahon's nearly 5,000.

The one race that did not go the Democrats' way in town was the 7th senatorial district.

Incumbent John Kissel (R) held on to edge out Karen Jarmoc (D) by fewer than 1,000 votes.

Locally, all incumbent elected officials remain in place after Tuesday's vote, including State Rep. David Baram (D-15), State Rep. Peggy Sayers (D-60), State Rep. Elaine O'Brien (D-61) and State Sen. Eric Coleman (D-2).

Coleman defeated Windsor resident Malvie Lennon (R) to hold on to his seat.

Lennon was one of two Windsor residents on the ballot, the other being Republican Paul Panos, who lost his bid for the redrawn fifth assembly district seat to Hartford's Brandon McGee.

Windsor residents also voted in favor of funding MDC's clean water project.

Sorry for the appearance of the above results. I did have them separated by columns, but lost it when submitted. In case you have difficulty reading the numbers, for Windsor it was 10516 Yes, 3368 No. By percentage it was 76% yes, 24% no. These percentages were very consistent for the remaining eight member MDC towns.
