Tom Foley, the Democratic House speaker whose defeat after 30 years in Congress was the crowning blow of the Republican onslaught of 1994, has died. He was 84.
Dan Malloy beat Republican Tom Foley to become the first Democrat elected governor of Connecticut in 20 years, the Associated Press said.
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.
Connecticut ’s next governor remains undetermined as the state’s election chief awaits the Nov. 2 vote count from Bridgeport , the state’s most-populous city.
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.
"Governor Malloy won this election with fewer votes than we won in 2010."
