By Jenna Carlesso

City Councilman Kenneth Kennedy sent e-mails over the weekend to the Hartford Democratic Town Committee and other city Democrats informing them that he would not be accepting the Republicans' endorsement. You can read more about the endorsements here.

The e-mails are below. Democratic Town Committee members may call a special meeting to discuss the cross-endorsements, party insiders said.

I have informed the republican party that I will not accept their endorsement in the interest of Democratic Party unity. I hope this settles the issue as the Council seems to be the real problem as we have 6 candidates and are not running by ourseleves as the other offices.
