Election Night 2014 is almost here and the Channel 3 Eyewitness News team will be there to bring you up to the minute results from cities and towns across Connecticut. Denise and I have lost count, but we’ve anchored many election nights together.
Our first was way back when Lowell Weicker was governor, the Montreal Expos were the favorites to win a World Series that was never played, and the hit song was “Whoomp, there it is,” may have been playing on your Sony “Walkman.” It was 1994.

Denise keeps the ceremonial velvet frock in a trunk in her attic along with her Bobby Sherman 45s and her high school cheerleading uniform.
