Two Young Black Men Elected To Public Office In Connecticut – As Republicans (VIDEO)

Ed Ford Jr. and Tyrell Brown recently made history. They are the youngest black Republicans ever elected to office in Connecticut – a deeply blue state!

WTNH News reports:

Ed Ford Jr. and Tyrell Brown have been best friends since middle school. They each developed a passion for politics at a young age. During their senior year in high school they served as president and vice president of student government.

“I met him playing two hand touch football,” said Ford, referring to Brown.

Now, they’re 20-year-old juniors in college, who possibly just made history following Tuesday’s election. They are believed to be the youngest black Republicans to ever win political office in deep blue Connecticut.

Ford won a seat on the Middletown school board, the same district where he attended public schools. “When the results came in I was absolutely euphoric,” he remarked.

Brown was elected to the Middletown Planning and Zoning Commission. “When I found out I won I said okay, time to get to work.”

Both freely admit some of their friends and family question if they are ready for rough and tumble Connecticut politics.

“If you have the will to do it, if you have the passion to do it, go do it now,” Ford said.
