Malloy gets warm welcome at NAACP convention over abolition of death penalty
With organ music underscoring his rhetorical points, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy addressed the faithful today at the NAACP national convention in Houston, where he was honored for signing into law a bill repealing the death penalty for future crimes.
Malloy scored points at the expense of Gov. Rick Perry, who sent video greetings instead of addressing the group. With a smile, Malloy noted he flew from Connecticut through New York to address the group.
Malloy’s office was sufficiently pleased with the reception that it alerted Connecticut reporters to a video of the speech.
