Stamford Dems Work Hard for Victory

At exactly 8 p.m., Stamford Republicans closed down their headquarters on Summer Street and headed off to Shelly's on the River to watch election returns.

Across town, Stamford Democrats were handing out lists to two-dozen volunteers, who were asked to call in to a Bridgeport district to get out the vote for fellow Democrats. Voting in Bridgeport was extended until 10 p.m. because of a shortage of ballots

"We're not giving up until the very end," Democrat volunteer Kevin Corcoran said. That approach proved to be a winning formula for Stamford Democrats as they won handily from the top of the ticket to the bottom.

"This is very disappointing, very sad," longtime Republican volunteer Eva Maldonado said.

But first-time Republican House candidate Kieran Ryan, who lost his race to Democrat Gerald Fox, was upbeat in defeat. "We gave it all we had. It's hard to know what voters want, change or the status quo."

Leading the ticket of local races, state Sen. Andrew McDonald won re-election by 59 percent to 41 percent over Republican challenger Robert Kolenberg.
