Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has some advice for fellow Democrat Chris Murphy: fight back. CTNewsJunkie.com reports that Malloy offered up his thoughts at a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Hartford.
Polls show the Senate race at a statistical dead heat despite Connecticut’s preference for Democrats. Linda McMahon (R) has been outspending Murphy with her personal wealth.
Malloy reportedly said that, “sooner or later people have to talk about policies.”
Social media popularity doesn’t exactly translate into votes come Election Day, but incumbent Democrat Rosa DeLauro has 3,139 Facebook “likes” compared to Republican Wayne Winsley's 406. DeLauro’s page is more than four years older than her challenger’s. On Twitter, Winsley has 456 followers compared to DeLauro’s 5,749.
