  •  Malloy will probably still prevail because of the (5+ / 0-)

    fine line he has trod with unions, but idiotic stunts like crashing Rick Perry's lunch in Hartford with CT gun manufacturers will not help him with a moderate GOP crowd that still exists in CT. Foley is simply a dolt, relying on some tired GOP talking points like voter fraud from the last election

    • Connecticut — Dan Malloy (D): Malloy, yet another 2010 squeaker winner, inherited serious budget problems when he came into office, and he chose to resolve them by relying largely on tax hikes rather than spending cuts. That difficult choice has hurt him in the polls, though Connecticut's clear Democratic lean provides a buffer. Malloy hasn't actually declared for a second term, but if he does, he could face a rematch with wealthy former Ambassador Tom Foley. A number of other Republicans are running or considering bids, though, so we may see the primary yield a different nominee.
