Rating Change: Connecticut Governor

Posted August 8, 2014 at 3:15pm

Dannel P. Malloy is a Democratic governor of a Democratic state, but he is far from a sure thing for re-election in November.  

Malloy won a close race in 2010 and will likely face former Ambassador to Ireland Tom Foley, a Republican, once again. The governor’s polling numbers have been consistently mediocre and this is looking increasingly like another close and competitive race.
