MANCHESTER — In the Bennington 4 House district, Democrats Kathleen James and Rep. Cynthia Browning won election from the two-seat district, while Rep. Brian Keefe, a Republican, fell short in his first bid for re-election, according to unofficial results.
With all four town clerks in the district reporting, James had 2,129 votes, trailed by Browning with 1,937 and Keefe with 1,731.
In Manchester, according to the town clerk’s office, James rolled up a big win in her home town, with Keefe, also of Manchester, placing second, and Browning, of Arlington, third.
Browning was first in Arlington, Sunderland and Sandgate.
Keefe said he had called Browning and James to congratulate them, realizing that the results in Sandgate would not save the day for his re-election bid.
