SEE HOW SHELTON VOTED: McKinney wins Shelton but loses statewide

State Sen. John McKinney won Shelton by a comfortable margin, but lost the statewide race for the Republican gubernatorial nomination to Tom Foley.

That sets up a rematch in November between Foley, a former U.S. ambassador to Ireland, with first-term Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.

Republican voters in Shelton voted in three statewide races today, and some also voted in a local state representative primary.

Shelton resident Angel Cadena, who was running for state comptroller, lost in Shelton and also lost statewide.

Below are the unofficial Shelton results for the statewide offices:


John McKinney — 845

Tom Foley — 692


Heather Somers  — 540

David M. Walker — 516

Penny Bacchiochi — 460


Sharon J. McLaughlin — 978

Angel Cadena — 455
