Merrill Snags Braith Kelly Endorsement for Re-Election as His Corruption Trial Begins.

A New York corruption trial has not interfered with Canterbury Democratic chairman Braith Kelly from keeping an in Connecticut politics. The federal criminal defendant’s trial began on January 8th–the same day Secretary of the State Denise Merrill rolled out a list of endorsements that included Kelly as one of her supporters.

Kelly made news in 2017 when his legal team objected to a courthouse display jurors were bound to see that highlighted the conviction of Bridgeport mayor Joseph Ganim on his first round leading Connecticut’s largest city. The display was removed.

The endorsement listed included the state’s congressional delegation but not Governor Dannel P. Malloy.
