A spokesman says Democrat Dan Malloy voted before 6:30 a.m. at Our Lady Star of the Sea Church in Stamford. Republican rival Tom Foley voted shortly after 6 a.m. at Bendheim Western Greenwich Civic Center in Greenwich.

Foley hopes to benefit from an anti-government mood that Republicans believe will motivate voters. He has touted his experience in turning troubled businesses around.

Malloy says he was a successful mayor who helped attract jobs to Stamford.

Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell is not seeking re-election. William O’Neill, elected in 1986, was the last Democratic governor.
