HARTFORD, Conn. – Joe Visconti, the third-party candidate in the race for governor, dropped out of the race Sunday afternoon and threw his support to Republican Tom Foley.

Visconti, who says he was not offered anything by Foley in exchange for dropping out of the race, said he saw a recent polling which showed the election “slipping away from Tom.”

“We probably can make a difference and push him over the top,” Visconti said Sunday in a phone interview. “I can’t deal with [Gov. Dannel P.] Malloy for four more years.”

Visconti said he knew he was causing some division and indecision in the conservative segment of the voting population even though public polling showed he was taking votes equally from Foley and Malloy.

    Too little, too late. All the coverage in the news is about Obama coming to CT to support Malloy, which will rally Malloy’s base to get to the polls, which is all he needs. If the Republicans wanted to win, they should have run McKinney.
