[Updated] Election 2012: Ellington and Somers Results

Obama wins presidency; Murphy defeats McMahon; Courtney wins in a landslide; LeBeau, Guglielmo, Bacchiochi win easily; Kissel and Davis retain seats

President Barack Obama won Connecticut - but not Ellington or Somers - and has also been predicted as the national winner.

In the U.S. Senate race between Linda McMahon and Chris Murphy, the incumbent Murphy defeated McMahon. This is McMahon's second failed attempt, but she says she has "no regrets."

In the 2nd District race, Joe Courtney defeated Paul Formica, Colin Bennett, and Daniel Reale easily.

3rd State Senate District

Democrat Gary LeBeau soundly defeated Republican challenger Hector Reveron Tuesday to return to his seat in Hartford.

7th State Senate District

In a battle familiar to both, Republican incumbent John A. Kissel faced Democratic challenger Karen Jarmoc in the contest to see who would represent the region in the Senate Chambers in Hartford.

Jarmoc served as state representative for the 59th District from 2007-2010. She stepped down from that seat to challenge Kissel in 2010, but fell short by just under a thousand votes. She suffered a similar fate on Tuesday, falling short by roughly 500 votes.

35th State Senate District

Incumbent Tony Guglielmo soundly defeated Democrat Susan Eastwood to retain his seat.

"I think we did well," he said. "I appreciate everyone who came out to vote and I know we could not have done it without both Republican and Democratic support."

52nd State Assembly District

Republican Penny Bacchiochi won easily over Democrat Chris Grohs and Christian Center Party candidate Daniel Traceski. The five-time house of representatives member received 6,618 votes while Grohs received 3,048, and Traceski received 83. 

The Somers resident and small business owner has been elected to this seat since 2002.

57th State Assembly District

In a race that pitted two men with close ties to East Windsor against each other, incumbent State Rep. Christopher Davis, a Republican, appears to have emerged victorious in the wee hours of Wednesday morning.

Davis garnered nearly 600 more votes than Democratic challenger Jason E. Bowsza to maintain the opportunity to represent the residents of East Windsor and Ellington in Hartford.
