Connecticut Congressman John Larson Wins 11th Term

Nov 6, 2018

Voters in central Connecticut are sending U.S. Rep. John Larson back to the U.S. House of Representatives for an 11th term.

Larson, a Democrat, was heavily favored to win the race in the largely Democratic district that includes Hartford.

His Republican challenger, Jennifer Nye, entered the race only when it became clear at the GOP convention no other candidates were stepping forward. Nye is a former member of the Manchester Board of Directors.

The 70-year-old Larson was first elected to Congress in 1998. His latest campaign has emphasized efforts to reduce gun violence, make higher education more affordable and expand the Social Security system.
