2010 gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley (R) "roared to victory Tuesday night in a low-turnout Republican gubernatorial primary, setting up a potentially contentious rematch with" Gov. Dan Malloy (D) "this fall that polls show will start off as a dead heat."
"Foley could be in a lively four-way race this fall if" former state Rep. Jonathan Pelto (D) and conservative activist Joseph Visconti (R) "can gain spots on the November ballot" as third party candidates. "Pelto and Visconti have submitted more than 7,500 signatures each, but those signatures might not be validated by election officials for 10 days or two weeks." (Hartford Courant)
Official AP results show Foley defeated state Senate Minority Leader John McKinney (R) 56-44% in Tuesday's primary with 100% of precincts reporting. (AP)
