One-time front runner Themis Klarides conceded Tuesday night.
“I entered this race because I believe the policies that Joe Biden and Dick Blumenthal were imperiling the American dream, that dream my grandparents came here for many years ago from Greece," said Klarides.
Another Trump loyalist declared victory Tuesday. Dominic Rapini handily defeated Terrie Wood in the secretary of state GOP race.
Critics call Rapini an "election denier." He once led a group that filed dozens of dismissed election fraud claims.
Rapini's opponent will be Norwalk's Stephanie Thomas.
Democrat Erick Russell easily defeated Greenwich's Dita Bhargava and New Haven's Karen DuBois-Walton in the race for treasurer.
