The third debate between Chris Murphy (D) and Linda McMahon (R) was reportedly a wild one due to a raucous crowd.
According to the Connecticut Mirror, the crowd, “asserted itself with repeated interruptions of Murphy that ranged from derisive laughter to boos to one woman's shout for him to simply ‘shut up.’"
After the third of four debates came to an end, Murphy accused McMahon of bringing in supporters, “to shout me down off the stage because she’s afraid of debating the issues,” reports The Associated Press.
The debate ended suddenly for television viewers when Linda McMahon had her closing remarks cut off. A post on her Facebook page saying the statement should be aired on the 11 p.m. news received 2,400 “likes” from supporters. WTNH apologized for ending the debate short and said the full debate can be viewed on its website.
Rosa DeLauro (D): Former U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter died on Sunday after representing Pennsylvania for decades -- both as a Democrat and a Republican. DeLauro said this about him on Twitter:
Arlen Specter will be remembered as a supporter of biomedical research, independent mind, thoughtful and serious legislator.
Wayne Winsley (R) had two campaign events on Tuesday. First, he met with voters at the North Branford Senior Center. Later that evening, a “flash mob” of supporters was planned for downtown New Haven.
