Spot the candidates

Dispatch from Greenwich Time correspondent Jay Polansky:

Greenwich resident Austin Clark has a penchant for spotting candidates at the polls.

He spotted Cos Cob resident Jim Himes, who is running for re-election in the 4th District of the U.S. House of Representatives, and his wife, Mary, sneak in to Central Middle School’s back entrance on his way to the polls.

But his presence didn’t go unnoticed.

“Reporters got him – brought him out the front,” Clark said.

While Clark doesn’t support Himes, he said he was happy the candidate said hello to him and shook his hand.

Earlier in the day, Clark drove up to North Street School to see U.S. Senate candidate and Greenwich resident Linda McMahon vote.

“That was fun,” said Clark, who was outside Central Middle School campaigning for state Rep. Fred Camillo, R-151st District. “She had a good crowd.”
