Campaign Notebook: Shays Compares McMahon Strategy to 'Nothing'

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.


Christopher Shays (R) has posted a video of Seinfeld's "Nothing" bit on his campaign website, comparing the infamous sketch to Republican opponent Linda McMahon's campaign strategy. 

Fourth District 

Steve Obsitnik (R): Republican candidate Steve Obsitnik has agreed to refund campaign contributions, reports the Connecticut Post. Obsitnik won the nomination at the Republican convention on May 18, thus avoiding the primary election and no longer needs the funds intended for its campaign.

Jim Himes (D): Himes, along with U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-3) and U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D), announced a $938,360 grant for Bridgeport's The WorkPlace. The grant will help living conditions for 300 veteran families in Southwestern Connecticut, including housing stability and receiving benefits.

Himes, Murphy, DeLauro and the entire lot "representing" CT are contributing to our nation's BANKRUPTCY with their votes! Everything they do in congress (such as OBAMATAX) serves to kill or at least strangle the economy by making government an ever bigger parasite upon the private sector and TAXPAYERS!!! Obsitnik is exactly right about the 'fiscal cliff' that congress has been steering the U.S. towards for many years! If CT voters were better informed, they would send NO more DEMS to congress, and replace all these "career politicians" with the principled "Limited Government" candidates, such as Wayne Winsley running against DeLauro, and Steve Obsitnik against Himes. http://www.obsitnik.com/ Please share Winsley's FB, or his website (http://winsleyforcongress.com), and help replace some career politicians with common sense navy vets Obsitnik and Winsley! **Wayne Winsley Rocks Republican Convention** Hartford, CT May 18, 2012. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWPBo-TE0-4&feature=em-share_video_user Himes is clueless as to the damage he has done in less than 4 years! Here is a one-minute example of his treatment of those who believe in NOT spending $$$ you don't have, and not running up the 5 TRILLIONS more in DEBT Himes voted for: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AQ3pWzMwWs
