WESTON, Conn. — Voters in Weston cast ballots Tuesday for a number of familiar faces when it came to picking their representatives in Hartford.

In the State Senate District 26, Republican incumbent Toni Boucher beat back a challenge from Democrat Carolanne Curry.

For State Senate District 28, Republican incumbent Tony Hwang was the victor over Democrat challenger Philip Dwyer.

In the race for Weston's only seat in the State House of Representatives, Republican Adam Dunbsy defeated Green Party candidate Bonnie Troy in District 135.

Dunsby is the First Selectman of Easton, a position he intended to keep if he wins.

The seat in the 135th was left open when John Shaban of Redding decided to run instead for Congress in the 4th District. Shaban lost that bid to incumbent Democrat Jim Himes of Greenwich.

The only local Weston race on the ballot was for Registrar of Voters, where Democrat incumbent Mike Zegers and Republican incumbent Theresa Brasco 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.
