Town officials in Wallingford are conducting a recount Thursday in the 90th state House district. Initial results showed Republican representative Craig Fishbein trailing Democratic challenger Jim Jinks, but the town clerk told the Connecticut Mirror that those initial numbers failed to include one of the nine polling places in the district. The full results showed Fishbein winning by 21 votes, out of more than 14,000 votes cast. That triggered an automatic recount because the difference was less than one half of one percent. Democrats gained seats in the state House, so the outcome of this election will not impact their majority.
