Bridgeport mayoral race set: Fabrizi vs. Torres
The votes are counted, and Mayor John Fabrizi will be the Democratic candidate in the November general election against Republican Rick Torres. Fabrizi beat State Representative Chris Caruso by only 303 votes.
The primary campaign remained heated until the very end. Caruso says he was denied voting information at the town clerk's office Tuesday night, touching off a scuffle at City Hall. On Wednesday, he listed several complaints he intends to take to the State Elections Enforcement Commission.
Caruso says there were individuals who went to vote and told that someone had already voted for them. Caruso also says he saw problems with the absentee ballot process and he says there was a problem with a voting machine in one of the high schools.
As for the winner, Fabrizi was out among the voters, enjoying his victory. He dismissed any continuing challenge from Caruso.
