Election 2012: South Windsor Results

Aman, Larson win re-election bids over Driscoll, Ogar, respectively; three referendum questions fail to pass

While the presidential election was relatively close as of 11:30 p.m., the local elections that affect South Windsor were handily won by incumbents.

State Representatives Bill Aman (R-South Windsor) and Tim Larson (D-East Hartford) both cruised in their re-election bids on Tuesday.

Aman, who was re-elected to his fifth term representing the 14th District, unofficially garnered 8,409 votes, compared to 3,782 for Democratic challenger Carol Driscoll.

"I am delighted with the results," Aman said. "I am very pleased with the overwhelming support I received and I am looking forward to serving South Windsor for another two years."

With three of four districts reporting, Larson, who won his third term for the 11th District seat, received 2,842 votes, defeating Republican Tom Ogar, who received 907 votes.

Larson said that he was pleased with the 3-to-1 margin of victory, but said in a telephone interview that "we have a lot of work to do."

State Sen. Gary LeBeau won his re-election bid for the 3rd District seat, defeating Republican challenger Hector Reveron.

In other results, two of the five South Windsor capital improvements referendum questions passed.
