Joe Courtney wins in 2nd House District

HARTFORD (AP) - Congressman Joseph Courtney has won a second term in Washington.
The 2nd District Democrat defeated former submarine commander Sean Sullivan on Tuesday. With 32 precincts reporting, Courtney won 63 percent to 34 percent.
The election was easier than Courtney's 2006 victory over Republican Rob Simmons. Courtney won that election by only 83 votes of nearly 250,000 cast.
A University of Connecticut poll in late September showed Courtney preferred by 50 percent to 23 percent of likely voters.
