In recent debates, Malloy has questioned Foley’s business ethics and claimed that Foley had lied to the FBI about a 1981 car crash, that had involved Foley spending a night in jail. Foley has questioned Malloy’s integrity, saying voters can't trust him because he was investigated for corruption when he was mayor of Stamford.

Foley was endorsed by the GOP and had been favored to win the match-up against the lesser-known McKinney, a 16-year veteran of the General Assembly from Fairfield.

Foley's victory sets up a rematch with Malloy, who won his first term by narrowly defeating Foley in 2010.
