State Sen. Tom Colapietro, an 18-year incumbent from Bristol, lost a close race today to Republican challenger Jason Welch.
Colapietro said he wished Welch luck.
"I don't envy him," Colapietro said.
Colapietro fell short mostly because Plymouth and Harwinton voters backed Welch strongly. In Bristol and Plainville, the race was a true squeaker.
Anyone know when Bristol last had a Republican state senator?
