Former Connecticut Senator Eileen Daily (D) died in late July.

FORMER CONNECTICUT SENATOR EILEEN DAILY (D) DIED IN LATE JULY. She was 72. Active in NCSL, Daily represented her Senate district for 20 years before deciding not to seek re-election in 2012. "For decades, she was a tenacious fighter for her constituents and a committee chair who wielded enormous respect among colleagues--and she did it with a smile on her face," Governor Dannel P. Malloy (D) said in a statement. "Eileen was one of the toughest elected officials in the state, yet her jovial disposition always made those around her feel at ease. She represented the best of public service and politics.... This is a loss for all of us. Eileen will indeed be missed."
