HARTFORD, Conn. – Even without including results from the state’s largest cities, Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy was confident enough to declare victory early Wednesday morning in his re-election against Republican challenger Tom Foley.


Update 6:10 a.m.: With 90.44 percent of the votes counted, Malloy leads by better than 23,000 votes; 50.69 percent to 48.27 percent.

Malloy took the stage at the Society Room around 12:30 a.m. to address supporters. Malloy’s campaign said he was winning with 412,801 votes to Foley’s 401,394 votes without the totals from cities like West Haven, New Haven, and Hartford.

Malloy’s campaign claimed their victories also were larger in some of the suburbs Foley won in 2010. They said Malloy won traditionally Republican towns like Branford and Guilford by 1,000 votes. They also won Danbury by 600, a city they lost by 1,200 votes in 2010.
