Although Tuesday will be a rainy one, it will also almost certainly be a busy one at the polls. Across the state, the candidates are making their last minute pitches.
A very exciting race is shaping up. Polls show it really could go either way. That’s why Greenwich Businessman Democrat Ned Lamont has been busy hitting the major cities and suburbs to try to drum up support.
News 8 caught up with him Monday in Hamden talking with customers at Three Brothers Diner and at the East Haven senior center.
He knows if he’s going to win this seat he’s going to have to not only claim the big cities like New Haven, Hartford and Bridgeport, He really needs the suburbs if he’s going to beat out Republican Bob Stefanowski.
Lamont told us he is giving it everything in the last 24 because he knows how important this election is and how important the stakes are.
Throughout the campaign he has said he can turn Connecticut around with his business experience. And he’s really been pushing his property tax plan where he says he would cut them for couples making under $130,000.
He does have political experience too. He served on the Greenwich Board of Selectman and as Chairman of the State Investment Advisory Council and ran for Senate in 2006 and lost.
So, will he pull out a W this time? The most recent poll showed him losing…but it was in within the margin of error…so it’s really anyone’s guess as to who will be the next governor.
Voters will decide all of this at the polls.
Both candidates will be in Greenwich Tuesday. Lamont plans to vote around 10 at his polling place and Stefanowski plans to be here shaking hands around 7.
