FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Republican gubernatorial hopefuls Tom Foley and John McKinney hit the polls early Tuesday to vote in the Connecticut primary.

Both are seeking to be the Republican candidate for governor to challenge incumbent Democrat Dannel Malloy in the November election.

In his Tweet, McKinney said his son, Matt, is voting for the first time. John McKinney said his first vote was for his dad, U.S. Rep. Stewart B. McKinney.

Polls are open statewide until 8 p.m. for registered Republicans to vote in the primary for governor, lieutenant governor and comptroller.
