Candidates for secretary of the state, state treasurer decided on Primary Day
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - Candidates for secretary of the state and state treasurer were decided on Primary Day.
Stephanie Thomas won the Democratic nomination for the Secretary of the State after New Haven health director Maritza Bond conceded.
Thomas now face GOP nominee Dominic Rapini in the November general election. Rapini defeated Terrie Wood.
Erick Russell also celebrated on Tuesday night. He won the Democratic primary for state treasurer.
He faces Harry Arora, the Republican candidate.
All candidates said they are ready for the November election. They shifted their focus to trying to attract voters on both sides of the aisle.
“I would like to appeal right now, today, to all unaffiliated voters, Republican voters who are looking for an alternative to conspiracy theories and the sewing of misinformation, who believe that it’s time to invest in our democracy and make sure that we have the infrastructure to run clean elections and that our registrars and town clerks are supported,” Thomas said during her victory speech.
Jayme Stevenson defeated Michael Goldstein for a Republican congressional nomination. Stevenson will face Rep. Jim Himes, a Democrat, in November.
