Multiple media outlets are reporting that U.S. Congressman Chris Murphy (D-5), a Cheshire resident, has won his bid for Connecticut's second U.S. Senate seat.
Murphy was opposed by WWE founder Linda McMahon, who had previously challenged current U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal.
Final numbers have no been tallied but Murphy appears poised to take over the seat being vacated by long-time U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman, who is retiring at the end of his term.
