STAMFORD, Conn. -- Board of Finance member David Martin topped state Rep. William Tong in voting Tuesday in the Democratic mayoral primary in Stamford, according to Twitter reports.
Martin will face off against Republican candidate Michael Fedele in the November election.
In 2009, Martin was the Democratic mayoral candidate and ran unsuccessfully against current Mayor Michael Pavia. Pavia is not seeking re-election in November.
Tong has represented the 147th District in the State House of Representatives since 2007. Both Martin and Tong had received numerous endorsements, with Martin getting the nod from the Stamford Democratic City Committee, while Gov. Dannel Malloy, the former Stamford mayor, went for Tong.
Fedele, the Republican candidate and a former lieutenant governor, will be on the November ballot along with petitioning candidate John Zito.
