Sally received the Independent Party's endorsement at a party convention in Newtown, saying, "I was eager to win the support of the Independent Party and I am glad I achieved it because I believe their endorsement reflects how I will approach issues in the legislature and the fact that I am running to represent people who hold a broad spectrum of viewpoints.”
In its endorsement of Connolly, the Connecticut-based political action committee for the NFIB wrote, “you will be committed to the needs of thousands of Main Street small businesses and their employees in Connecticut when you are elected to serve in Hartford.”

Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidates are candidates running for U.S. Senate, U.S. House, Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, State Senate, and State House in 2018 that have demonstrated support for common-sense gun violence prevention measures by satisfactorily completing a gun sense candidate questionnaire. Sally Connolly has pledged to vote on the side of gun safety if elected to office.
CAGV grades were determined using responses to the CAGV Candidate Questionnaire on Gun Laws sent to all candidates and, if the candidate is an incumbent, a detailed assessment of his or her legislative record including votes in committee and on the floor and whether they have introduced or co-sponsored bills or amendments to strengthen, or weaken, CT gun safety laws. Also considered are one-on-one interviews with the candidates, public statements they have made, testimony, appearances at public events and press conferences and remarks made to gun violence prevention and gun rights advocacy organizations
