Statement from Democratic Party Chair Nick Balletto on Republican Secretary of State Nominee

Hartford, CT – After Republican delegates endorsed Susan Chapman to be their Secretary of State nominee even after she was soundly defeated for re-election in New Fairfield this past November, Democratic State Party Chair Nick Balletto released the following statement:

“The Trump administration has already made it clear they intend to roll back voting rights and spread misinformation about our voting system. Access to the voting booth is one of our most fundamental rights. We need a Secretary of State who will stand up to expand and protect our right to vote, not cower behind the agenda of a President who cries ‘voter fraud’ every chance he gets.”
