Stamford Democrats endorse Caroline Simmons over current Mayor David Martin
Stamford Democrats have endorsed state Rep. Caroline Simmons for mayor in a 21-19 vote.
Simmons defeated longtime Mayor David Martin, who was elected seven years ago.
Martin can still collect enough signatures to force a primary. If he does, Democratic voters will decide who gets the nomination on Sept. 14.
The ultimate winner will face a Republican, as well as former New York Mets manager Bobby Valentine. Valentine has already raised $300,000 running as an independent candidate. He had even collected donations from former President George W. Bush.
