Campaign Notebook: McMahon Wants Tax Cuts Extended

A daily roundup of the news from the campaign trail in Connecticut.

Senate

Linda McMahon (R): The candidate found agreed with President Obama that the Bush era tax cuts should be extended for the middle class.

“Last week's jobs numbers reminded us that no matter what career politicians may say, our economy is still sluggish and middle-class families are hurting. We should not be raising taxes on anyone right now,” she said in a statement.

She added, “I am the only candidate with a plan to cut taxes for the middle class, while Congressman Murphy has a long record of raising taxes on the middle class."

Chris Murphy (D): The Democratic frontrunner is working to strengthen his campaign with the just-opened headquarters in New Haven. His campaign blog features a video of the opening.

Fifth District

Chris Donovan (D): The financial malfeasance of the Donovan campaign can be hard to shake, said former state Speaker of the House Jim Amann. He told the Register Citizen that Donovan should take responsibility.

Andrew Roraback (R): State Sen. Toni Boucher of Fairfield County once backed Justin Bernier. Now, according to the Hartford Courant, she’s endorsing Andrew Roraback.
