Janet Appellof, a spokeswoman for the Democratic Town Committee's 6th District (South Hartford) said this morning that eight of the 13 members of her district came out to a meeting Saturday in which they questioned Hartford Police Officer and State Rep. Hector Robles about his pending internal investigation.

When asked if committee members had changed their minds about supporting Robles, Appellof said: "No one has made that decision as far as I know. At this particular point, everyone is still supporting him."

Democrats from the 6th District unanimously endorsed Robles at their nominating convention in May. He faces Hartford resident Alyssa Peterson in the upcoming primary.
