There will not be a Democratic primary in Newtown's 106th State House District. After narrowly losing to Newtown Legislative Councilwoman Eva Zimmerman, Kyle Lyddy has said he would not seek a primary. During the May 24th caucus, Democrats voted 91 to 86 in favor of Zimmerman. In addition to serving on the legislative council, she is a state labor union organizer and support liaison for Access Health CT.
She is looking to unseat incumbent Republican Mitch Bolinsky, who won his party's endorsement to seek a third term.
Bolinsky currently serves on the Aging Committee, the Education Committee and the budget writing Appropriations Committee.
