Malloy Moves Ahead With Gov. Transition; Foley Contests Results

Former Stamford, Conn., Mayor Dan Malloy is moving ahead with plans to form a transition team in anticipation of becoming Connecticut's next governor after the secretary of the state said he won Tuesday's election.

But Republican businessman Tom Foley says he is forming a transition team too because his numbers show he won the election.

Democratic Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz says unofficial election results showed Malloy winning by about 3,100 votes out of more than 1.1 million cast.

Malloy says the margin is three times that. But Foley, a millionaire businessman from Greenwich, says his numbers show him winning by fewer than 2,000 votes.

The incumbent, Republican M. Jodi Rell, chose not to seek re-election.
