Connecticut's Malloy Says He Has Enough to Win

Connecticut's Malloy Says He Has Enough to Win
by
Gov. Malloy has been in a tight race for months with Republican Tom Foley.

Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy says the final numbers aren't in yet, but he believes he'll get enough votes to win a second term.

Malloy's campaign staff said they were still awaiting results from Hartford, New Haven and other Democratic strongholds.

The Democratic incumbent took to the stage and told cheering crowds at a downtown function hall that "we are in a position to declare victory" and that "no matter how large the margin or how small the margin, we're standing here today."

Republican businessman Tom Foley hasn't conceded the race. He narrowly lost to Malloy in 2010.

Malloy has been in a tight race for months with Foley, who has criticized the governor for his handling of the state's economy and for raising taxes.
