Shays, 63, did well in Westport and other suburbs but was done in by an overwhelming Democratic tide in Bridgeport, Stamford and Norwalk. Himes, 42, is the first Democrat to be elected in the district in 40 years.

“We were overcome by a tsunami,” Shays told supporters at the Norwalk Inn. “If you think we lost this race because we didn’t go negative, you’re just wrong.”

He added, “The one thing I would request, please no sympathy. There is only gratitude for what we had.”

UPDATE Democratic state Rep. Joe Mioli of Westport today easily defeated Republican challenger Nitzy Cohen in Connecticut’s 136th House District.

Mioli, a popular former owner of Westport Pizzeria and native of Italy seeking his third term, did well in all the town’s districts. Cohen, an Israeli-born businesswoman and first-time candidate, had promised to be a maverick in Hartford to get more state funding for Westport.

The Town Clerk’s Office reported Mioli got 8,815 votes or 65 percent and Cohen 4,656, or 35 percent.

“I’m very grateful,” said Mioli, who mingled with fellow Democrats at the party’s election headquarters in Parker-Harding Plaza. He later invited Westporters to join him and his family in a thank you celebration on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Westport Pizzeria. (See Letters)

Westport Voter Turnout “Heavy and Steady”

UPDATE Westport’s voter turnout today was “heavy and steady” and virtually problem free, election officials said.

“It’s heavy and steady and going very well,” said Judy Raines, Republican registrar of voters.

Nita Cohen, her Democratic counterpart, echoed the assessment. “It’s been a steady, steady flow,” she said. “There was a rush in the morning, and it’s been steady since then.”

By 3 p.m., the registrars said 72.8 percent, or 13,068, of the town’s almost 18,000 registered voters had cast their ballots.
