Chris Murphy Making Ferris Bueller Proud?

News and updates on Connecticut's Senate and Third District races.

Senate

Chris Murphy (D) faces criticism for his attendance record at committee meetings by his opponent. An independent investigation by Hearst Connecticut Newspapers backs up the claim that Murphy missed three-fourths of the hearings during 2007-08, when the economy started rapidly declining. The opening line of the article: "Ferris Bueller would be proud."

Linda McMahon (R): The Wall Street Journal acknowledges that it seems like a Republican has no chance in Connecticut, but the results of a Ramussen poll shows McMahon with a slight lead. According to the Wall Street Journal, "One poll doesn't make a race. But this one sure does make this race more interesting."

3rd District

Rosa DeLauro (D) condemned the much-criticized "legitimate rape" comments of U.S. Rep. Todd Akin in Missouri. On Facebook, she wrote that, "Rep. Akin's views are in the mainstream of the current Republican party."

Wayne Winsley (R): A message on Winsley's Facebook page explains how the candidate hopes to improve the economy.

"It makes perfect sense. Our economy will improve when more people get back to work. More people will get back to work when businesses begin growing again. Businesses will grow when government gets out of the way."

[Note: Stratford is part of the 3rd Congressional Disctrict, along with the following towns and cities: Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Bethany, Branford, Derby, Durham, East Haven, Guilford, Hamden, Middlefield, Middletown, Milford, Naugatuck, New Haven, North Branford, North Haven, Orange, Prospect, Seymour, Shelton, Wallingford, Waterbury, West Haven and Woodbridge.]

Rosa, do me a favor and try not to paint all of us with such a wide brush stroke. You know that your statement is false and you can't even back with any evidence. Where do you come up with these things? Instead of talking about this, you should be looking into the congressman who was just caught having sex with a young boy in his car.
