Campaign Notebook: Murphy Responds to Bysiewicz Ad

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.


Chris Murphy (D): In response to Democratic rival Susan Bysiewicz's new ads accusing Murphy of taking contributions from Wall Street and hedge funds, Murphy released a statement that Bysiewicz is actually attacking former Congressman Scott Murphy:

"The new ad accuses Chris Murphy of taking 'more hedge fund money than any Democrat in Congress.' In fact, Murphy has never been the top Democratic recipient of hedge fund contributions in Congress. Ever." 

Linda McMahon (R): Campaign manager Corry Bliss has posted Linda McMahon's new ad on her campaign website. It promotes McMahon's Jobs Plan.

Fourth District

WestportNow reports that Jim Himes has raised $2.24 million in his campaign, which is three times more than Steve Obsitnik's total.

Boy does Bysiewicz have this guy pegged. Can anyone tell me what real world experience Murphy has that qualifies him to be making decisions that impact all our lives? Can you say sycophant.

Susan does not even know which Murphy she is talking about. Wrong Murphy. This is the Dem from NY. Check the facts. Sad state of affairs when this kind of ad is allowed to stay running. All a matter of public record Sir. I am not voting for someone who cannot check public Election campaign records going back many years before throwing money into false ads. Chris Murphy's real world experience has been in tyring to plug all the loop holes in the Buy American Act since he was elected. We need jobs in America and they cannot get this legislation passed! Look up the legislation. It was been voted down last year by 4 votes and will probably not make it back for a floor vote due to filibusters in the Senate. Disgraceful. We need him in the Senate where he can make a difference. Check out the Buy American Caucus. Google it and learn something.
