On a surreal Election Day that may take weeks to settle (in court) the gubernatorial race, city voters responded in far greater numbers that anyone had projected. The turnout unofficially is near 40 percent, large for a mid-term race. Bridgeport’s chief registrars Sandi Ayala and Joe Borges have a lot of explaining to do about why only 21,000 ballots were printed.
Before Barack Obama’s visit to Bridgeport city pols were concerned they’d be hard press to see a 30 percent turnout. And now the city is at the center of deciding the governor’s race. And you wonder why I call this Only In Bridgeport?
