HARTFORD, Conn. – The Secretary of the State’s office informed West Hartford Tea Party Republican gubernatorial candidate Joe Visconti via email Wednesday that his name will appear on the ballot in November.

After not receiving enough support at the Republican convention in May to automatically qualify for the Republican primary, Visconti, a gun rights advocate, decided to go the petition route and collected the 7,500 signatures he needed in order to run for governor without the backing of a major party.

“I had no doubt that I was going to qualify,” Visconti said Wednesday.

Visconti will appear on the ballot with Republican Tom Foley and Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. The Secretary of the State’s office is still tallying the petitions from Jonathan Pelto, another third-party candidate who is trying to qualify to run for governor.
