Who's on the Ballot

Democratic primary

• Susan Bysiewicz, former Connecticut secretary of the state.

• Chris Murphy, congressman

About the race : Politically, the two candidates share ground. Both have said they support marriage equality for same-sex couples and preserving the reforms made in the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare.”  Both also advocate for reducing dependence on foreign oil by encouraging more energy-efficient cars and green energy production.

The two are also running on plans to bring more jobs to Connecticut. Bysiewicz’s platform includes easing burdens on small businesses, rebuilding the state’s infrastructure and bringing more manufacturing here. Murphy’s economic plan centers on his “Buy American” program, a series of bills to encourage manufacturing and selling domestically made goods.

Who can vote: Only registered Democrats can vote in Tuesday’s primary.

Republican Primary:

• Chris Shays , former congressman, and

• Linda McMahon, Greenwich resident and former WWE CEO

About the race : Much of the talk in the race has focused on the economy. Both Republicans have spoken out against what they call wasteful spending and both have said they would work to repeal Obama's health care law. Both candidates are in favor of lowering the corporate income tax rate, which currently stands at 35 percent.

McMahon says her economic plan would have a positive budgetary impact of $1.7 trillion from 2013 to 2021. One major component would be lowering the middle-class tax rate from 25 percent to 15 percent. She also wants to eliminate the capital gains tax for the middle class, end the tax on inflation, eliminate the death tax, gift tax and alternative minimum tax and provide greater deductions for educational expenses. Shays believes his economic plan would create a 4 percent annual growth in the economy. The biggest factor holding back growth has been the Federal Reserve, he said, accusing it of mismanaging monetary policy and the dollar.

Who can vote: Only registered Republicans can vote in Tuesday’s primary.
