We have a primary!
Time: 9:43 PM
Last night I received word from a number of sources that there will be a Democratic primary race for the 24 State Senate seat. Today I called the Secretary of State office and confirmed that long time Democratic activist Terry Tierney has collected the necessary signatures to force a primary challenge against the fellow Democrat, and Danbury Common Council member, Duane Perkins.
For those who don't know, at the state senate convention, Tierney came within one vote from forcing a primary forcing him to run out and collect the necessary signatures to challenge Perkins before the deadline. Now that it's official, and seeing the Democratic Party's desire to capture this particular senate seat (being vacated by David Cappiello), this primary might turn out to be one of the more interesting races to watch this summer.
Let the games begin!
