The Connecticut governor’s race is still too close to call. As of Wednesday morning, unofficial results show Republican Tom Foley leading Democrat Dan Malloy 50 percent to 49 percent, with 90 percent of precincts reporting. The difference amounts to just over 11,000 votes.

A major ballot shortage in Bridgeport was being blamed for helping to keep Connecticut's governor's race in question.

Voting was extended by two hours Tuesday night in about half the polling places in Connecticut's largest city to allow voters to cast ballots in precincts that had earlier run out.
