Connecticut gubernatorial race
With the race neck and neck, Gov. Dannel Malloy and Republican challenger Tom Foley have busy campaign schedules on the final weekend before Election Day.
In Tuesday’s primary, Foley, a Greenwich businessman and a former U.S. ambassador to Ireland, defeated Senate Minority Leader John McKinney, R-Fairfield.
The contest between Greenwich businessman Tom Foley and Senate Minority Leader John McKinney of Fairfield for the GOP nomination is the marquee race in this year’s primary.
Republican Tom Foley was clinging to a lead early Wednesday in the Connecticut governor’s race, but many of the uncounted returns were coming from cities where Democrat Dan Malloy was expected to do well.
