HAMDEN - A new Quinnipiac University poll shows the race tightening up less than one week before both parties hold a primary in the race for governor.

On the Democratic side, the poll finds Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont leads former Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy 45 percent to 40 percent among likely primary voters, a smaller lead than last month.

For Republicans, Greenwich businessman Tom Foley leads Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele 41 percent to 26 percent among likely primary voters. Last month, Foley led 48 percent to 13 percent.
