McMahon Campaign Withdraws Request For New Haven Ballot Certification

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Republican Linda McMahon’s Senate campaign has pulled its request for an emergency court order demanding election officials in New Haven prove they have enough ballots for every precinct on Election Day.

McMahon campaign spokesman Todd Abrajano  said the campaign’s attorney met Friday morning with New Haven officials and received assurances that enough ballots have been ordered.

He said the campaign has been working proactively to make sure cities and towns have certified they’ll have enough ballots for Tuesday. It comes after problems arose in 2010 in Bridgeport when ballots ran out.

Rae Tramontano, the GOP registrar in New Haven, said on Thursday that city officials had notified the Secretary of the State’s Office in time by email that enough ballots had been ordered.
