Looking Ahead: In One Year, CT Will Have Elected a New Governor

After eight years of Dan Malloy, Connecticut will give someone new a chance in just about one year.

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 is Election Day in Connecticut. Municipalities will hold elections across the state.

However, Tuesday also marks roughly one year from the day Connecticut will elect a new governor. This one will replace Gov. Dan Malloy (D-Conn.) after eight years.

Malloy:

Malloy’s unpopularity and the years of tax hikes may favor a Republican candidate. First, though, the nominee will have to wade through a large and talented field. As of November 2017, at least 10 Republicans are running and have raised tens of thousands of dollars.

Whether a Republican or a Democrat wins in 2018, though, the end of Malloy’s eight-year reign is near.
