Campaign Notebook: Murphy, Bysiewicz Spar Over Ad

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.


Chris Murphy (D): In response to Susan Bysiewicz defending her television ad accusing Murphy of accepting more contributions from Wall Street than any other Demcoratic candidate, Murphy criticized his Democratic rival's campaign ethics, . 

"I've never seen a candidate intentionally and willfully lie over and over again after she's been called to the carpet for it...The increasingly clear difference between Susan Bysiewicz and I is that she's wiling to say and do anything in order to get elected and ultimately I think voters are seeing that clearer than they're seeing any attack she's lobbing at me," he said. 

Linda McMahon (R): McMahon has received the most personal attacks going into the primary, according to Fox News. They say that the jabs at her wealth and political skills have been even worse than during the 2010 campaign.

So when do these candidates start talking about their solutions instead of insulting "the other guy?"

Let the ladies brawl in a "last one standing - anything goes" Cage Match LIVE on the WWF ! They both disgust me. And Linda can make a little dough from the TV ad sales. Meanwhile ... Chris Shays can inform our little hamlet of CT on the issues that directly effect our lives and what he is going to do about it !! Listen to him folks - he is the ONLY one of these 4 that makes any sense !!
