A few moments ago, there was a report that Connecticut Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz declared Democrat Dan Malloy as the unofficial winner for the state governor.

However, Republican candidate Tom Foley seems to be leading now and it was believed that the sudden lead was due to the absentee votes counted, according to the Washington Post.

Ms. Bysiewicz was said to have not included absentee votes results when she declared Dan Malloy as the unofficial winner.

As of this writing, reports said that the vote count now shows that Foley is now leading over Malloy by 8,424 votes, with all but 1.5 percent of the precincts counted.

“I’m standing by those numbers,” Malloy was quoted as saying, as he adds that he believes he won by more than 11,000 votes.

Meanwhile, Tom Foley was said to be firm that he will still win against Malloy after all the votes will be officially be counted.
