NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — New Haven's mayor has been upset in that city's Democratic primary election.

Toni Harp, who was seeking a fourth two-year term, lost Tuesday to former alderman Justin Elicker.

Harp, whose campaign was hurt by revelations of a federal investigation into the finances of the city's Youth Services Department, is considering running in November on the Working Families Party line.

Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin won that city's Democratic primary over former Mayor Eddie Perez and state Rep. Brandon McGee Jr.

Perez, who resigned in 2010, was seeking a comeback after pleading guilty to accepting a bribe and attempted extortion.

Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim, who served time in prison for corruption, won that city's Democratic primary over state Sen. Marilyn Moore. Moore says she plans to make a third-party run in November.
