Robyn Porter (D) defeated Berita Rowe-Lewis (D), Reynaud Harp (D), Charles Ashe (D), Jerome Dunbar (D) and Len Caplan (R) in the special election, which took place on April 24.[1][4][5][6]

The seat was vacant following Gary Holder-Winfield's (D) election to the Connecticut State Senate.[1]

A special election for the position of Connecticut House of Representatives District 94 was called for April 24. Candidates were supposed to be nominated by their party rather than chosen through a primary. Because the district's Democratic committee did not endorse a candidate, a number of them appeared on the special election ballot.[1]
