Campaign Notebook: Murphy's Attendance Record Criticized

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.

Senate

Linda McMahon’s campaign scrutinized U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy’s record again and claims that the congressman missed three-fourths of all committee hearings. Hearst Newspapers performed their own audit and came up with similar results.

“How can Congressman Murphy look the people of Connecticut in the eye and claim he deserves a promotion when he never even showed up for the taxpayer-funded job he already has?” said Corry Bliss, McMahon’s campaign manager.

Murphy’s campaign says McMahon is just trying to deflect the conversation about Social Security.

"Linda McMahon is desperately trying to change the subject as pressure mounts on her campaign following recent revelations that she unveiled her proposal to end Social Security with a `sunset provision' at a tea party meeting in April," Murphy spokesman Eli Zupnick said in a statement, reports the Connecticut Post.

Fifth District

Politico reports that a poll commissioned by a right-leaning organization shows Andrew Roraback with a seven point lead over Elizabeth Esty. The poll, conducted by American Viewpoint, also shows Linda McMahon with an 11 point lead over Chris Murphy.
