HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) – Connecticut State House Democrats now have a super majority.
Seven seats flipped blue this election, giving House Democrats a bigger edge over House Republicans.
Both sides say this is a blue wave they were expecting, but they still plan to work together as the state will face some challenging months ahead.
House Dems now hold a huge majority in the General Assembly, with 98 eats to Republican’s 53 seats.
“Overall, our numbers haven’t dropped to low watermarks that we’ve seen in years past,” said Rep. Vincent Candelora.
Future House Minority Leader Representative Vincent Candelora says he isn’t shocked that they lost some seats during a presidential election year.
Moving forward, he is concerned about how Democrats will handle the state budget with their stronghold.
