SHERMAN, Conn. — Sherman First Selectman Clay Cope of Sheman fell short in his bid for Congress on Tuesday, but local voters help to send state Sen. Michael McLachlan back to Hartford.

Cope conceded late Tuesday to Democratic incumbent Rep. Elizabeth Esty, who will return to Washington for her third term.

In the race for State Senate District 24, McLachlan beat back a challenge from Democrat Kenneth Gucker.

In the race for the State House, Republican incumbent Richard A. Smith ran unopposed and was re-elected.

In the local Sherman race for registrar of voters, Democrat incumbent Bill Petkanas and Republican incumbent Shelia J. McMahon were re-elected.

For the U.S. Senate, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat, won re-election by topping Republican challenger Dan Carter of Bethel. Carter did not seek re-election to the State House due to his Senate run.
