Finish line approaches in race for governor

BRIDGEPORT - After days of waiting and hours of counting, it appears Connecticut could soon have an official winner in the race for governor.

The city of Bridgeport completed its count this morning, and if those numbers are made official by the secretary of the state, Democrat Dan Malloy will win the governor's race by more than 5,000 votes.

Republican Tom Foley late this morning announced his plans in reaction to the Bridgeport numbers. He says the voters deserve to be confident in the final election results, and as it stands now, they aren't.

Foley says his objective is to get an accurate count whether it's in his favor or not, and it may require a recount for that to happen. He says he doesn't want to hold up the process, but wants to be sure the numbers are right.
