Musto Wins Connecticut's 22nd Senatorial District Race

The Democrat took the most votes in Monroe and Trumbull with Bridgeport, a city that votes heavily in favor of Democratic candidates left.

State Sen. Anthony Musto (D-22nd) won in both Monroe and Trumbull Tuesday night, leaving Bridgeport, a city with a history of favoring Democratic Party candidates, so his challenger, Trumbull Town Council Majority Leader Chadwick Ciocci conceded to the incumbent.

"I want to thank him for a good campaign," Musto said. "I look forward to working with him and the rest of the Town Council for the next two years."

Musto also thanked all who helped his campaign and the voters.

Musto won in Trumbull 9,258 to 7,654 and in Monroe, a town that traditionally votes Republican, 1,672 to 1,490.

Ciocci expressed his disappointment in the outcome of his race and others in the state, during an interview at Marisa's restaurant in Trumbull.

"It was a tough election, but based on the results, we have much more work to do," he said. "Based upon what I heard, the state of Connecticut will continue down the path that destroys jobs, that destroys the economy. I'll fight to restore jobs and prosperity to the state of Connecticut.

"Connecticut is no better off as a result of this election, but I congratulate my opponent on a well-fought race and hope he does well."
