AP Reports DeLauro Wins 3rd District Race Convincingly [Update]

It's another term for Democrat Rosa DeLauro, as she defeats Republican Wayne Winsley by a wide margin in the race for Connecticut's Third District.

Update at 10:15 p.m. Nov. 6:

It's another two years for Democrat Rosa DeLauro.

DeLauro, first elected to represent Connecticut's Third District in 1990, was re-elected Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. She defeated Republican Wayne Winsley.

The Hartford Courant reported just at 8:45 p.m. - with just 6 percent of the total precincts reporting - that DeLauro won with 88 percent of the vote.

DeLauro significantly outraised Winsley in campaign donations: She raised more than $1 million and he took in $57,000.

The original report follows:

Long-time congresswoman Rosa DeLauro is seeking her 12th term representing the Third District. Republican Wayne Winsley, a motivational speaker and author, hopes to unseat the incumbent.

Compared to some of the more competitive races in the state, the Third District has been fairly quiet, as DeLauro enjoys a big advantage when it comes to campaign funds. The demographics of the region also favor Democrats.

Still, Winsley is hopeful.

“Everyone but the voters thinks this race is decided, but I believe I have a very good chance of winning,” Winsley told the Yale Daily News.
