David M. Walker who was aligned with McKinney for the lieutenant governor’s spot also won here with 352 votes, trailed by Heather Somers who received 319 votes and Penny Bacchiochi with 157.
For the comptroller’s race, Sharon J. McLaughlin received 465 votes in Westport, beating Angel Cadera who received 244 votes, according to figures released tonight by the Office of the Town Clerk.
