Linda McMahon (R): The campaign released a new ad that talks up McMahon’s business credentials with the WWE, and criticizes Chris Murphy for skipping committee hearings in Congress, while also condemning a couple of his votes.
Chris Murphy (D): A shows Murphy leading by four points. A poll released from Quinnipiac University earlier this week showed McMahon with a three-point lead, so the race appears to be close.
The husband of Elizabeth Esty – who heads the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection – found himself in the middle of the campaign. The Register Citizen reports that Andrew Roraback demanded that Esty not accept campaign donations from the companies her husband regulates.
