HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- In the 5th District race, Elizabeth Esty has defeated Andrew Roraback.
Esty will take the seat vacated by Chris Murphy in his run for the U.S. Senate.
"What a great win for Elizabeth Esty, and the people who live in the 5th District," Governor Malloy said of the victory. "Elizabeth started this race as a huge underdog, but she never stopped fighting for what she believes in. She's exactly the type of person Congress needs more of: smart, tough, compassionate, and fiscally responsible. The people who live in the 5th District could not have a better person representing them in Washington, DC."
