HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Five of the candidates running in next month’s special election will soon learn if they’ve qualified to receive a state grant for their campaigns.

The State Elections Enforcement Commission has scheduled a special meeting Monday.

The candidates include Republican New Britain Mayor Timothy Stewart, who is running for the 6th senatorial district; Democrat Joan Walker and Republican Noreen Kokoruda, both of Madison and candidates for the 101st House district; and Stamford Republican Robert Kolenberg, a 27th senatorial district candidate.

Also, Republican Janet Peckinpaugh of Essex, former TV anchor and GOP congressional candidate, is seeking public funds for her 36th House district campaign.

Eight Democratic lawmakers resigned before taking the oath of office this session.
