The convicted felon and current Democrat mayor of Bridgeport, Connecticut (the state’s largest city) has formally entered the race for governor.
Joe Ganim, who was convicted and spent almost 7 years in federal prison for political corruption crimes, filed paperwork with the State Elections Enforcement Commission to seek the Democrat nomination for governor.
Given that he is a Democrat and is running in one of the most far-left and politically-corrupt states in the Union, Ganim does not think that his status as a convicted felony will be a problem for his campaign. Said Ganim, “This election is not going to be about someone’s past, it’s going to be about, I’d like to think, our collective future, Connecticut’s future.”
