Campaign Notebook: Murphy Goes on Attack with New Ad

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.


The Chris Murphy campaign goes on the offensive with a new 30-second ad that criticizes Linda McMahon’s history with the WWE and her jobs plan. The narrator opens the ad with, “As CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, Linda McMahon had a plan. Shift profits overseas to avoid U.S. taxes.”

McMahon’s camp said that the ad is “misleading.”

“Perhaps Congressman Murphy should take a few courses in international business where he would learn all about how international companies earn profits internationally and pay their taxes to the countries in which they are doing business,” said Corey Bliss, the McMahon campaign manager.

Can't help but think that we'll need Kennedy-like vision and #NeilArmstrong like cool to once again lead world on education and energy. 

Steve Obsitnik (R) released his first campaign ad, which costars his two daughters and criticizes government borrowing.
