Isn’t Connecticut one of the few states bucking the trend this year, i.e. going red?

Connecticut might get a Trump supporter for the R Gubernatorial race... So far Stepfanowski is leading with 30%. Stepfanowski is a businessman...

I sure hope so, but I wouldn't bet on it. Registered Republicans are far outnumbered by registered 'RATs here. Also, 'RATs are pi**ed off at all things Republican because of Trump, so I have to assume their voters are mobilized.

And probably worst of all: Thousands of Republicans and conservatives have permanently left the state over the past 8 or so years. Overall it's not the 'RATs who are leaving, but those on 'our side'.

I guess incumbent Dem Dan’l Boone, er, Dannel Malloy not running for re election and GOP may have a chance?

Vox: “Despite the state’s heavy liberal lean, voters are deeply displeased with the floundering economic policies of current Gov. Dannel Malloy, and they could take out their frustration on the Democrats running to succeed him.

Malloy took office in 2011 and promised to revitalize the state as it was still recovering from the financial crisis. Two terms later, much of what he pledged has been slow to materialize. Instead, Connecticut continues to face a roughly $2 billion deficit, even after tax hikes pushed through by Malloy and the Democratic-controlled legislature.”

Doubtful. There are too many intellectually deficient self-absorbed academics in Connecticut.

We’ll find out in November when this Democrat goes against the Republican on the ticket.
