ANALYSIS | The 2014 Governor’s Race: In Which We Are Much the Same

by Susan Bigelow | November 6, 2014 8:59am

Susan Bigelow
So, here we are again. Dan Malloy has defeated Tom Foley by a slim margin, after an election troubled by frustration and incompetence at the polls in one of our cities. After all that, after a wearying election that was far more about fear, money, and blame than policy, government, or even the idea of the next four years, we’re right back where it all began.

ANALYSIS | Turnout In Cities, Fate Of Roraback Country Keys To Victory In 5th District

by Matt DeRienzo | October 30, 2014 4:00pm

Two years ago, former state Sen. Andrew Roraback came within 3 percentage points of winning a 5th District congressional race that, like the rest of Connecticut, seemed on its way to becoming a “safe” seat for Democrats.

Roraback won Litchfield County and Farmington Valley towns that had previously gone to former 5th District congressman and now U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy.

But it was a presidential election year, Murphy was getting out the vote for his U.S. Senate campaign against Linda McMahon, and there was high voter turnout in the heavily Democratic 5th District cities of Meriden, New Britain, Waterbury, and Danbury.
