Ned Lamont Loses Connecticut Democratic Primary for Governor, AP Reports


In a surprising upset, Dan Malloy, a former mayor of
Stamford, Connecticut’s fourth-largest city, defeated Ned
Lamont, a multimillionaire businessman who tried
unsuccessfully to oust Senator Joseph I. Lieberman four years
ago.
His victory sets up a contest with Thomas Foley, a prominent
Republican fundraiser and former ambassador under President
George W. Bush who won the Republican primary on Tuesday.
Republicans have held the governor’s office in Connecticut
since 1991.
