Dan Malloy beat Republican Tom Foley to become the first Democrat elected governor of Connecticut in 20 years, the Associated Press said.
Democrat Dan Malloy , the former mayor of Stamford, was declared the unofficial winner over Republican Tom Foley in the race for Connecticut governor as the two sides sparred over election results. Foley refused to concede.
Former Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy won the Democratic nomination for governor in Connecticut, handing Ned Lamont his second defeat for a statewide office.
Republican Tom Foley conceded the race for Connecticut governor to Democrat Dan Malloy , saying he wouldn’t challenge Nov. 2 voting irregularities in Bridgeport, the state’s biggest city.
