WESTPORT - After nearly a week of questions regarding the election results in Connecticut's gubernatorial race, Republican Tom Foley conceded to Democrat Dan Malloy this afternoon.
Foley said his team had spent the week reviewing election results town by town, but did not find reporting errors, evidence of fraud or anything else that could change the outcome.
Following Foley's announcement, Governor-elect Malloy held his own press conference. Malloy says he's prepared to take office and is already in discussions with current Gov. M. Jodi Rell on the state budget.
Malloy will be sworn in to office on Jan. 5.
