I detect a Chris problem. While there is a link for Mr. Shays, the only candidate to have one I might add, there is not even a photo of Mr. Murphy. Waz up with that???

I cannot trust Susan Bysieswicz as she strikes me as a person trying to be creative to stay in state government as a career versus really doing something to help the people of CT. Although I like both Chris Shay and Murphy, IMO, they've been unsuccessful in inspiring true change. I am not familiar with Kie Wesby so cannot judge. However, when it comes to Linda McMahon, although I didn't vote for her. I see her as a very strong woman, who some men and women view as negative. I personally have no problem with her having a successful business. All Americans have this ability but fail, where she succeeded. I think her strong personality will do something that goes beyond that her ideology. I believe she will not be influenced in her decisions by her party. Which is a trait sorely missing from politics today.

I believe that Chris Shays is hands down the best candidate. He has the knowledge and experience to stand up for what is right. As a centrist republican, he knows how to work with both parties. In fact, he always found a democrat to co-sponsor a bill with him when he was a representative for over 20 years for the 4th district (which includes Fairfield). Because of his experience he is a better canidate over McMahon. Shays has allys and knows the procedure in Washington, versus McMahon who has never held office. YOU DON'T START OUT AS A U.S. SENATOR! And that is what McMahon is trying to do. For her it is not about making a change, it is just another adventure and experience for a multi-millionaire. It is her ambition versus Shays' desire to restore the promise of America. McMahon is trying to buy this election by spending over $12 million. She's out shopping again. CT and the U.S. needs a brave, intelligent, and experienced Senator who has proven to be part of the solution. Please join me and the other Shays supporters by VOTING FOR CHRIS SHAYS IN THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY AUGUST 14TH!

As an addition to my previous comment: Polls show that Christopher Shays is the only candidate with a chance to win over both democrats (Check it out! I have copied the link below). CT Republicans, if you want to send a Republican to the Senate than vote for Shays on August 14th! If McMahon is elected, we are giving the Democrats a win (just like in 2010 when she spent $50 million to loose by a 12 point margin). SO VOTE FOR SHAYS ON AUGUST 14TH!
