Official tally...

U.S. Rep.-elect Joe Courtney was declared the winner in the 2nd Congressional District race by 90 votes - less than .03 of a percent - in his battle with incumbent Republican Congressman Rob Simmons. More than 242,000 votes were cast in the 65 town district that emcompasses one-third of the state's land mass.

Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz made the official announcement this morning, bringing an end to the election - the closest congressional race in the nation.

Courtney is still in Washington attending freshman orientation sessions this week. Simmons returned from Washington last night and has scheduled a press conference for 3:45 this afternoon at his Mystic campaign offices.

I wouldn't recommend anyone go to this site. It is unfortunate that we can't get away from the spam anymore than we can those annoying robocalls during the campaigns.
