Campaign Notebook: Murphy Finds Hopeful Manufacturers in CT

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.

Chris Murphy (D) was joined by U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal in Hartford to release the findings of a manufacturers’ survey. In total, 191 manufacturers in Connecticut responded. The survey showed 77 percent were confident in the future.  

"This report gives us the data we need to make the case for Connecticut manufacturing to policy-makers in Washington and across the country,” Murphy said. “We will use this information to push for policies that will create jobs in Connecticut and fight against policies that will ship Connecticut manufacturing jobs overseas.”

The Linda McMahon (R) campaign criticized the press conference and told Murphy to “stop the campaign stunts and produce a jobs plan.”

Fourth District 

Jim Himes (D) shared some of his late summer reading on Twitter.

Reading "Thinking Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman after finishing "Moneyball". Darn interesting pairing on how we make decisions.

Steve Obsitnik (R) met with the Hartford Courant editorial board earlier this week.

Once again, I ask, what did any of them do to reduce government spending this week?

My husband and I own a manufacturing company, and I truly believe this is a falsified report and/or survey. This truly is not a manufacturing friendly state. I believe even Governor Malloy stated that in a recent commentary.
