The long wait is over, as the ‘final and official’ vote tally for Connecticut Election 2010 was released by the Secretary of the State on Friday night (US time), as published at different international news sites.

According to reports, Dan Malloy won as the next Connecticut Governor, who will become the first Democrat elected governor of that state in 20 years.

According to the statement, Democrat candidate Dan Malloy finally won as Governor against Republican Tom Foley, with 5,637 votes ahead by the former.

Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz, released a statement through her spokesperson Av Harris, said that Dan Malloy had 566,498 votes while Tom Foley had 560,861 votes.

However, Tom Foley is still not conceding as of this writing, although the lead by Dan Malloy is not subject for recount, as the Connecticut law only allows a vote difference is 2,000 votes.

On earlier reports, Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz, declared Dan Malloy as Connecticut Governor, although the absentee votes has not yet been counted.

Later, Tom Foley made an announcement claiming that he is leading as per his own records of vote tally until one controversy lead to another.

Not so long after the results from the city of Bridgeport were announced and Dan Malloy won as governor, Tom Foley made a statement about the election and apparently said that the election results are ‘inaccurate’.
