Rating Change: Connecticut Governor
Posted at 3:15 p.m. on Aug. 8
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.
We’re changing The Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call rating of the race from Leans Democratic to Tossup/Tilts Democratic.
