Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley, who did not formally concede a very close election to Democratic incumbent Dannel Malloy on Tuesday night, issued the following email to supporters Wednesday afternoon, conceding the race.
"Thank you for your support with my campaign for governor. We came very close. Our appeal for change in Connecticut – pro-growth policies including lower taxes, more responsible spending, and more support for job creators – was endorsed by more than 48% of Connecticut voters. Governor Malloy won this election with fewer votes than we won in 2010.
