Campaign Notebook: Murphy Goes on Attack with New Ad

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.


The Chris Murphy campaign goes on the offensive with a new 30-second ad that criticizes Linda McMahon’s history with the WWE and her jobs plan. The narrator opens the ad with, “As CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, Linda McMahon had a plan. Shift profits overseas to avoid U.S. taxes.”

McMahon’s camp said that the ad is “misleading.”

“Perhaps Congressman Murphy should take a few courses in international business where he would learn all about how international companies earn profits internationally and pay their taxes to the countries in which they are doing business,” said Corey Bliss, the McMahon campaign manager.

Elizabeth Esty (D): The Record Journal reports that Chris Donovan, who lost the Democratic primary, reached out to Esty for the first time. They discussed the Working Families party, which endorsed Donovan earlier this year and he still remains on the ballot for the party.

Andrew Roraback (R): The Register Citizen reports that Roraback’s pro-choice beliefs aren’t in sync with the national Republican Party.

Exactly. One wonders how Murphy made it through law school, but then again he's not nor has he been a "practicing" attorney, anyway. For his 6 years in the U.S. Congress, he has NO signature legislation to point to, has NO leadership position on any of the committees he serves on. That tells you a lot about what his party's leadership thinks of him. He can be counted on to vote with his party's leadership 100% of the time, which any monkey can be trained to say "aye" when his light goes on and his name is called - provided he is present to vote. The main questions the people of CT should be asking themselves is "what has Murphy done to improve the lives of the people of CT?" And, "what has Murphy accomplished that makes him a "stand-out" among his peers that we should elevate his position to Senator?" The answer to both questions is "NOTHING".
