Drag on the ticket? Greenwich Republicans outperform Trump in district voting

GREENWICH — The town of Greenwich is still considered as a Republican stronghold, but it may not seem that way to President Donald Trump after the 2020 election.

Trump was bested by Democrat Joe Biden in every single one of the town’s 12 voting districts. Biden improved on the voting numbers earned by Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016, when she also drew more votes than Trump, who once owned a home in Greenwich.

Many voters in Greenwich split their tickets, allowing Biden to win in districts where Republicans candidates including state Rep. Harry Arora in the 151st, state Rep.-Elect Kimberly Fiorello in the 149th and state senate candidate Ryan Fazio posted big vote margins over their Democratic opponents.

Trump’s presence on the ticket created a unique situation in Greenwich, according to Republican Town Committee Chair Dan Quigley.

“The polling numbers suggest to me that our local candidates outpolled the president,”
