HARTFORD, Conn. – The Connecticut Public Interest Research Group, the Senate and House Republican Caucus, and nine citizens filed objections to the Connecticut Democratic Party’s request to use federal funds on statewide races.

As of late Sunday evening, the State Elections Enforcement Commission, which warned the Democratic Party twice that it shouldn’t be using its federal account on statewide candidates has not filed its objection.

The Connecticut Democratic Party made the request to the Federal Elections Commission on Oct. 1. It told regulators it was looking for permission to use money in its federal account on a statewide mailing promoting the re-election of Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.

The Democratic Party has declined comment directly on the request.
