State Sen. Tom Colapietro, a Bristol Democrat locked in a tough fight with Republican Jason Welch, has been bopping around the polls today.
"I'm still looking for the four busloads of thugs from New Jersey," Colapietro joked.
He said, though, he met one person campaigning who was from New Jersey - Welch's mother.
Colapietro said she came up to him and introduced herself.
"She's a very nice lady," Colapietro said.
Welch's mother, who raised her son by herself, is a property manager.
Colapietro said turnout has been OK today, but not as much as some expected.
