Meanwhile, another recount shows Republican state Rep. Noreen Kokoruda, of Madison, has won re-election to the 101st Assembly District by 18 votes. The original tally had her ahead of Democrat John-Michael Parker by 23 votes.

Recount results are pending in Stratford’s House seat, where incumbent Democrat Rep. Phil Young holds an 18-vote lead over Republican Jim Feehan. There’s also a recount in the 17th state Senate District race between Republican Sen. George Logan, of Ansonia, and Democrat Jorge Cabrera, of Hamden.
