The Connecticut Attorney General election took place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent George C. Jepsen (D) was first elected in 2010 and won re-election in 2014. He defeated Republican candidate Kie Westby and Green Party candidate Stephen Fournier for another four-year term.

Connecticut is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Though parties decide who may vote in their primary election, the primary is considered closed as neither the Democratic Party nor the Republican Party allow any voter but those registered with their party to vote.[1]
