The Connecticut nominating primaries for the 2014 election were held on Tuesday, August 12.
Governor: Incumbent Democratic Governor Dan Malloy ran uncontested and will face former Ambassador to Ireland Thomas Foley in November. Foley defeated State Senator John McKinney to secure the Republican nomination. While Connecticut is deep blue at the Federal level, this race is very competitive. Polling shows the race to be tied and the professional pundits generally show the race to be a toss-up.
US House: All vote totals can be seen here. There were no contested primaries; all incumbents will likely win re-election in November. The only marginally competitive race this fall is in the 5th District, where incumbent Democrat Elizabeth Etsy is likely to defeat businesman Mark Greenberg.
