The State Elections Enforcement Commission on Wednesday approved a $30,575.00 public grant to the State House campaign of Downtown businessman Kelvin Ayala who’s challenging Democratic-endorsed incumbent Antonio Felipe in an August 11 primary.
Connecticut’s 130th State House District covers the South End and Downtown, stretching from Yellow Mill Pond on the East Side across the Pequonnock River rambling to the West End from North Avenue south to Bostwick Avenue.
Absentee ballots are now available to all district Democratic electors who’d like to vote that way due to the public health emergency.
Felipe has also qualified and received his public campaign grant.
The Covid-delayed presidential preference primary will also take place August 11 with Joe Biden, the presumed Democratic nominee, on the ballot.
