The election in the Conn./2nd CD is still unresolved, with Joe Courtney (D) holding a 167-vote advantage over Rep. Rob Simmons (R).Â But 2006 is a relative landslide, compared to 1994.Â That year, Ed Munster (R) failed to unseat Rep. Sam Gejdenson (D) – by 21 votes.
In 2000, the political fates finally caught up with Gejdenson, as – ironically – Simmons, the current GOP incumbent unseated him, in what the Hartford Courant described as “a stomach-churner”.Â And now Simmons, six years later, is in an extremely close battle with his own challenger, Courtney.
