Sen. Kelly: CT Sec. of the State’s “undereducated electorate” comment is offensive

September 19, 2023

For Immediate Release

Senate Republican Leader Kevin Kelly today issued the following statement in reaction to Connecticut Secretary of the State Stephanie Thomas’ Sep. 18 “undereducated electorate” comment.

“I was appalled to hear Connecticut’s chief election official, a Democrat, cast blame on the citizens of Connecticut’s largest city by calling them an ‘undereducated electorate’ regarding the Bridgeport ballot fiasco.  This is offensive to say the least. Let’s be clear, the citizens of Bridgeport are the victims of a broken electoral system that Democrats don’t want to admit to.”
