Late-comer candidate Rep. Carter wins GOP Senate nomination

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - State Rep. Dan Carter has won the Republican Party's nomination for the U.S. Senate, and will face Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal in November.

The Bethel Republican garnered his party's official backing just weeks after entering the race.

He easily defeated former Olympian August Wolf, who entered the race a year ago, and former fashion executive Jack Orchulli.

Orchulli urged the 1,182 delegates on hand Monday night to rally around Carter, a two-term state representative, saying unity was the Republican Party's best chance to defeat Blumenthal.

Carter entered the race on April 4, backed by his fellow Republican legislators in the General Assembly. House Minority Leader Themis Klarides nominated Carter, and praised her colleague for his military service.
