CT Race for Lt. Governor – Bysiewicz v. Markley v. Frank


When you vote for governor on Tuesday, you won’t only be voting for the man at the top of the ticket.

Each has a running mate and the lieutenant governor could have significant power once they take office.

That’s because the lieutenant governor presides over the State Senate. Last term, the senate was evenly divided with 18 Democrats and 18 Republicans. Outgoing Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman made the deciding vote in over three dozen votes in the last two years.
