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.
