News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut's races for Fifth Congressional District and U.S. Senate.


U.S. Senate

Linda McMahon (R): McMahon appeared on Better Connecticut's "Cooking with the Candidates" on Thursday. 

Christopher Shays (R): The Hartford Courant endorses Christopher Shays for the August 14 Republican primary. 

Susan Bysiewicz (D): Bysiewicz has pulled her controversial television ad that accused Democratic rival Chris Murphy of accepting the most Wall Street contributions of any candidate, reports Real Clear Politics. Bysiewicz stands by the claim and said the ad "had run its course." 

Fifth Congressional District

Democrats Elizabeth Esty and Dan Roberti have joined Republican opponents Mark Greenberg and Lisa Wilson-Foley in self-funding their campaigns, reports the National Journal. Now four out of the seven candidates have contributed significant amounts of money to their own campaign.

Campaign Notes: President Obama will be attending a 35K dollar per head fundraiser in CT with Anne Hathaway and Aaron Sorkin. http://washingtonexaminer.com/another-celebrity-fundraiser-for-obama-features-anne-hathaway-and-arron-sorkin/article/2504089 You see, the class warfare nonsense only applies to rich non-liberals. If you're rich and you're an Obama supporter, you're not part of the 1%. How many of us can afford a 35K dollar meal? Rich liberals can, apparently. Tedious.

We the loyal workers of Connecticut are happy to offer the Dear Leader the use of our public park at Sherwood Island for the day so he can enjoy watching Catwoman give Harvey Weinstein a lap dance. Forward. Hope. Change.

From Michael Shea: "We the loyal workers of Connecticut are happy to offer the Dear Leader the use of our public park at Sherwood Island for the day so he can enjoy watching Catwoman give Harvey Weinstein a lap dance. Forward. Hope. Change." Brilliant! LOL!
