Tuesday’s primary results yielded one big surprise: Republican Bob Stefanowski upset the party’s endorsed candidate, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, and won the GOP nomination for governor.
Stefanowski, a former GE and UBS executive who self-financed his campaign, took to the airwaves and ran ads months before his opponents – a strategy that paid off. He cruised to victory tonight, defying expectations, and teeing up an unlikely matchup for November.
Stefanowski will face Democrat Ned Lamont in the governor’s race. Lamont won the Democratic primary for governor by a large margin over Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim.
