NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut state senator has easily won re-election despite injuries serious enough to prevent his campaigning.

With all precincts in the southeast Connecticut Senate district reporting, Democratic Sen. Andrew Maynard won 16,778 votes Tuesday. Republican Kevin Trejo received 11,858 votes.

The four-term lawmaker suffered a serious fall in July. Maynard’s family said in October he’s “increasingly cognizant, able to remember, walk on his own,” but that challenges remain for full recovery. They said they believe he’ll serve when the 2015 legislative session convenes in January.

Trejo had raised no campaign money and did little campaigning.

An Oct. 30 debate was canceled because of Maynard’s condition. The Day of New London reports (https://bit.ly/1AgJGiW ) that Maynard did not vote and did not request an absentee ballot.
