HARTFORD, Conn. – It was a night of tossups, and the constitutional offices were no exception. Of the four constitutional office races, only one had been formally called by 1 a.m.

Democratic Attorney General George Jepsen declared an early victory over Republican Kie Westby, telling a small crowd at the Society Room that he was “humbled beyond words to serve as your next attorney general.”

State Comptroller Kevin Lembo declared victory shortly before midnight, but his Republican opponent, Sharon McLaughlin, said the race was too close and she wouldn’t concede until all the numbers were in.

Tim Herbst, the Republican running for state treasurer against Denise Nappier, whose race had been considered the closest, took the podium at the Trumbull Marriott just after 1 a.m. to announce that he was sending his supporters home, but he had not conceded.
