Esty raises $340K for Conn. House primary

Connecticut voters will decide Aug. 14 between Esty and her two primary opponents, Dan Roberti and state House Speaker Chris Donovan. Neither of the two has released his second-quarter numbers yet, although both were outpaced by Esty in the first quarter. But the overall race is still expected to be tight, with only about $200,000 in cash on hand separating the three candidates at the end of the first quarter.

The trio is vying to replace Rep. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), who is vacating his fifth district position to run for the state's open U.S. Senate seat.
