Campaign Notebook: Murphy's Congressional Attendance Debated

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.


One of several back-and-forth arguments between the candidates has been Chris Murphy’s attendance at hearings in Congress. Linda McMahon has hammered Murphy on the issue, reports CT News Junkie, but former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons says the attendance record of only 20 percent isn’t entirely accurate.

Fifth District

Democrat Chris Donovan had the backing of labor unions heading in the August primary, but it wasn’t enough to give him the win. Elizabeth Esty, the primary’s winner, has yet to receive their support, reports the Hartford Courant.

Sour Grapes Simmons; he and Shays ought to get together and form the "whine" and Cheese Party. Murphy, as a three-term no-ranking backbencher with no legislative accomplishment, who has consistently voted FOR job-killing legislation, and has done absolutely nothing for his district during his time in office; what makes him so special that we in CT should be elevating him to U.S. Senator?
