In this year’s Connecticut governor’s race, the two major parties appear to be heavily focused on the state’s cities. Both Republican Tom Foley and incumbent Democrat Dannel Malloy have made several campaign stops in Bridgeport since Foley won the GOP primary last Tuesday.

It was after a recount in Bridgeport four years ago, that Malloy defeated Foley by a narrow margin of 6,404 votes.  This time the Republican businessman from Greenwich appears to working hard to prevent that. But while campaigning on the East Side of Bridgeport on Friday Foley denied that was the case.
