In another shocking twist to Connecticut's race for governor, The Associated Press has withdrawn its declaration that Dan Malloy has won.
With votes still to be counted, Foley has a small lead, and the office of Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz, which had also declared Malloy the winner, has been mum on specific numbers.
Malloy would be Connecticut's first Democratic governor in two decades, and was believed to have narrowly defeated millionaire Republican businessman Tom Foley in one of the closest gubernatorial elections in state history.
Malloy, 55, would succeed retiring Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell and will become the first Democrat to hold the job since William O'Neill left office in 1991.
Foley, however, refused to concede the race Wednesday, saying his campaign's vote totals showed him winning.
