Partisan composition of House
The page currently shows the partisan composition of the CT House as 52 Republican and 99 Democrat, as of February 2011, after the special elections. This is not accurate. There are actually only 98 Democrat Reps at the moment and one vacancy. This is because Rep. Carlo Leone won a State Senate seat in the special elections. His seat is now vacant, and another special election will be held in April to fill it. http://www.senatedems.ct.gov/ By the way, when you view that link as source, you'll see that the other new Democrat in the Senate is also a former State Rep. But she was not a sitting Rep when she won, so she did not leave her seat vacant.
By the way, I haven't edited in a while, so I hope I didn't breach protocol by putting these remarks here. If I did, I apologize. I just can't remember where I should put them, and here this was. Cheers!
- Thanks for the comment! This is the perfect place to leave your note. And yes, I'll be sure to make that adjustment and we'll add it to our special elections page. Thanks again for that reminder and welcome back! --Geoff Pallay 22:13, 27 February 2011 (CST)
