Campaign Notebook: Murphy Campaign Raises Social Issues

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut


Linda McMahon (R): A Quinnipiac University poll shows McMahon with a three-point lead in the Senate race. 

Chris Murphy (D): Murphy’s campaign continues criticizing McMahon. A statement released earlier this week questioned McMahon’s stances on social issues.

"Connecticut families deserve to know: will Linda McMahon join her party and vote in favor of the anti-choice, anti-birth control leadership if she is elected to the Senate?" said Taylor Lavender, spokesperson for the Murphy campaign. “If she won't commit to voting against anti-choice, anti-woman Republican leaders like Mitch McConnell and Roy Blunt, then a vote for Linda McMahon is a vote to end a woman's right to choose and to end legal birth control."

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee says Elizabeth Esty (D) is leading Andrew Roraback (R) according to a poll, reports the Register Citizen. The poll, conducted by the Global Strategy Group, has Esty with a 45-35 percent lead.

It is not suprising to see Murphy use the same old scare tactics employed by the rest of the loons in the Democratic party. No one wants to limit birth control and being pro-life and supporting the right of unborn babies not to be murdered in the womb is not anti-choice.
