Connecticut Gubernatorial Primaries

Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy is termed out. Despite the blue lean of the state, this race is currently considered a toss-up in the fall, owing in part to the incumbent's unpopularity. On the Republican side, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton was endorsed by the party, but is in a competitive primary with several others. For the Democrats, it is a two-man race between businessman Ned Lamont and Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim. You may remember Lamont from the state's 2006 U.S. Senate election - he defeated incumbent Sen. Joe Lieberman for the Democratic nomination. Lieberman then ran as a 3rd party candidate and was reelected. For his part, Ganim brings a colorful background to the race.

Connecticut Senate Primary

Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy was renominated by acclamation at the party convention in May. He is expected to win a 2nd term in November.

Connecticut House Primaries

The only contested primary is in the state's 5th congressional district. The incumbent, Elizabeth Esty, is not seeking reelection. Although the makeup of the district could yield a competitive race, the political climate is such that Democrats are likely to hold the seat. The state's four other Representatives are running for another term and expected to win in November.

The Democratic primary in the 5th district is rather interesting. It pits the party-endorsed candidate against a political neophyte running a grass-roots campaign. Mary Glassman is a long-time local politician, while Jahana Hayes is a former educator named 'Teacher of the Year' by President Obama in 2016. Hayes is attempting to become Connecticut's first black representative in Congress.
