Connecticut's recent history of close gubernatorial races continues in 2018. Gov. Dannel Malloy (D), who never received more than 51% of the vote, is not seeking a third term. The race is a battle of the businessmen: Democrat Ned Lamont, who launched his own cable company, vs. Republican Bob Stefanowski, a former executive at GE and UBS. Stefanowski says his corporate experience will help him solve Connecticut's budget crisis, while the Lamont campaign says Stefanowski outsourced jobs and ran a payday loan company. Increased Democratic enthusiasm makes this a difficult seat to flip, despite Malloy's unpopularity. In Congress, Sen. Chris Murphy (D) is heavily favored to win a second term against Navy veteran and small business owner Matthew Corey, and none of the state's five Democratic-held House seats are expected to be competitive.
