Tuesday was primary day in two dozen Connecticut communities. Incumbent Democratic mayors in Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport all faced primaries. In Hartford, former mayor Eddie Perez was trying to make a comeback against first-term Democratic Mayor Luke Bronin. Perez was forced from office after a corruption conviction in 2010. WAMC News spoke with John Dankosky of WNPR's "The Wheelhouse" for an analysis of the results.

Today is primary day in Connecticut, and as with last Tuesday’s vote in New York, today’s vote in Connecticut will matter for the first time in years. By this point, primaries in both states haven’t mattered very much, with nominations often decided, but not this year as the fight is likely to go to the conventions. For more on today’s primary in Connecticut, we spoke with John Dankosky, the host of the program “Where We Live” on WNPR in Hartford.

For more on the primary voting today in Connecticut, we turn to John Dankosky, the news director of WNPR Public Radio, and host of the program "Where We Live."
