Though Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz ’83 announced this afternoon that unofficial tallies indicated that Democrat Dan Malloy would be the next governor of Connecticut, Malloy’s Republican opponent, Tom Foley of Greenwich, holds a lead of 8400 votes in the race with 99 percent of precincts reporting.

The 12 embattled precincts in Bridgeport that were kept open for an additional two hours last night after they ran out of ballots have not yet reported their results. Fairfield County, which includes Greenwich, Bridgeport and Stamford, has reported 94 percent of its results. Six of Connecticut’s seven other counties have reported in full; the seventh, Hartford County, is 99 percent in.
