ST. PAUL, Minn. - Democratic Attorney General Lori Swanson is conceding in the Democratic primary for Minnesota governor.
Swanson trailed heavily in early returns from Tuesday night's three-way primary against Rep. Tim Walz and state Rep. Erin Murphy. She told supporters gathered at an election night party that the people had spoken.
Swanson had been considered a top contender since launching her last-minute bid.
But her campaign was marred by allegations that may have caused voters to reconsider. The campaign came under fire last month after her running mate, U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan, was...

HARTFORD, Conn. - Wealthy businessman Ned Lamont easily won the Democratic nomination for Connecticut governor, defeating Bridgeport mayor and ex-convict Joe Ganim in Tuesday's primary.
Lamont's win comes 12 years after he defeated the party's then-veteran U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman in a Democratic showdown that was viewed nationally as a referendum on the war in Iraq. Lamont later lost in the general election when Lieberman ran as an independent.

HARTFORD, Conn. - U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy advanced to the November election without facing a primary election Tuesday in the Democratic party.
