Campaign Notebook: Murphy Campaign Quiet on Finances


The election is less than two months away, and polls show a close race with Linda McMahon sometimes with a slight lead in the Democrat-heavy state. According to a campaign analysis from the CT Mirror, there have been some strategic lapses from Chris Murphy’s camp. 

The question is one the Murphy campaign declines to address a week after disclosures about the candidate's past financial problems, opting instead to brush aside the query with a retreat to campaign talking points.

Nor will the campaign say why Murphy is refusing to release loan documents that could rebut McMahon's innuendo that he and his wife couldn't have subsequently obtained a $43,000 line of home-equity credit without political favoritism.

A Web-only video released by the Murphy campaign criticizes McMahon’s record as CEO of WWE.

Third District

Rosa DeLauro (D): The candidate’s website details her positions on various issues, such as the security of the country. According to the website, DeLauro, “believes that protecting our country means protecting the individual freedoms that we have fought so hard to secure. That is why she believes that torture has no place on America’s agenda, at home or abroad.”

Wayne Winsley (R): Roll Call, a newspaper dedicated to covering Capitol Hill, details Winsley’s planned standup comedy fundraiser. According to the article, Winsley is a former comedian who once shared the stage with Chris Rock and others.

Fifth District
