HARTFORD, Conn. – Republican Tom Foley conceded the governor’s race Wednesday in an email to supporters.

“We came very close,” Foley said.

He touted the gains his campaign made in Connecticut’s three largest cities, but admitted the campaign lost ground from 2010 in many of the other towns.

Foley attributed some of the loss to “relentless negative advertising” which he says “kept voters at home.”

    With all his resources, Foley was not able to buy the election. He is obviously a very intelligent businessman, but, running a business and making a lot of money is very different from running for office.

  2. Tim D

    Oldtimer must be the brains behind the Malloy campaign.

  3. Piberman

    What kept voters home was the utter lack of anything resembling a coherent platform on what he would do and how he would do it. He just ran against the Governor. That easy way ought is rarely successful.
