The aftermath

HARTFORD, Conn. – Despite the re-election of a Democratic incumbent, financial hardship, and weathering “vitriolic” attacks from people he once considered allies, petitioning gubernatorial candidate Joe Visconti says he has no regrets.

Visconti, a contractor from West Hartford who served one term on the town council, ran as a Republican until this year’s nominating convention. Then he collected 10,000 signatures and petitioned his way onto the ballot alongside Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Republican Tom Foley.

Until the weekend before the election, Visconti resisted calls from Republicans to drop out of the race and endorse Foley in what was expected to be tight election. Even after he endorsed Foley, he remained on the ballot and drew more than 11,000 votes.

In a phone interview Friday, Visconti said he was happy with his campaign.
