HARTFORD, Connecticut — Final vote totals from this month's statewide election show Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy defeated his Republican rival, businessman Tom Foley, by 28,019 of the nearly 1.1 million votes cast for governor.

Secretary of the State Denise Merrill's office posted the final statewide election results Wednesday on her website.

This year's gubernatorial race was a rematch between Malloy and Foley. In 2010, Malloy defeated Foley by 6,404 votes of 1.1 million cast.

The final election results showed Malloy was particularly strong in the Hartford area's 1st Congressional District and the New Haven area's 3rd Congressional District. Foley bested Malloy in the 2nd, 4th and 5th Congressional Districts.

Malloy received 554,314 votes, Foley 526,295 and petitioning candidate Joe Visconti, 11,456. Visconti withdrew at the end election to support Foley.
