HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut lawmakers reconfirmed State Supreme Court Justice Andrew McDonald on Thursday to another eight-year term, two years after he lost a politically charged battle to become the high court's chief justice.
The state House of Representatives approved McDonald's nomination by Democratic Gov. Ned Lamont on a bipartisan vote of 104 to 37. Ten members were absent. Three Democrats joined 34 Republicans in opposing the former Democratic state senator's nomination.
