Aug. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Former Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy won the Democratic nomination for governor in Connecticut, handing Ned Lamont his second defeat for a statewide office.

Malloy, 55, beat Lamont in today’s primary, according to the Associated Press. With more than 80 percent of the vote counted, Malloy had 58 percent while Lamont had 42 percent, according to AP.

Lamont, 56, a multimillionaire businessman, in 2006 defeated incumbent Joe Lieberman in the state’s Democratic U.S. Senate primary. Lieberman, 68, ran in that November’s election as an independent and won. On Capitol Hill, he caucuses with the Senate’s Democratic majority.

Connecticut’s Republican governor, M. Jodi Rell, is retiring. In the race to replace her, Tom Foley, former U.S. ambassador to Ireland, captured today’s Republican nomination, according to AP.

Foley, 58, defeated Lieutenant Governor Mike Fedele, 55, and Oz Griebel, 61.
