U.S. Sen. John McCain joined Linda McMahon (R) on the campaign trail in Connecticut on Monday, with planned stops at the Disabled American Veterans Hall in Danbury and a meeting of McMahon supports at the Norwalk Inn.
"This election rests on the veterans," McCain told veterans, reports Danbury Patch. "Turn out the vote. I want each of you to call 50 people. Even call your mother-in-law. This is a call to action."
Chris Murphy (D) criticized the company opponent Linda McMahon keeps. The Murphy campaign says McCain “led the charge” on a plan that “nearly cost the state its submarine base and tens of thousands of Connecticut jobs.”
“Whether it’s Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, or John McCain, Linda McMahon just can’t hide her close ties to the national Republicans that she hopes to join in Washington,” said Ben Marter, a spokesperson for Murphy. “McMahon has already publicly toyed with the idea of closing Connecticut’s sub base, but cozying up to the man who almost single-handedly destroyed southeastern Connecticut’s economy is beyond the pale.”
Rosa DeLauro (D): The fundraising deadline for the quarter was Sept. 30, and DeLauro was among the many candidates throughout the state asking supporters for donation via email.
“Are we going to attempt again to build our economy from the top-down by giving more tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans, or are we going to grow our economy from the bottom-up by creating jobs, investing in education and health care?” DeLauro said in the email.
Wayne Winsley (R): Vice presidential hopeful Paul Ryan was in Connecticut for some fundraising events. A photo on Winsley’s Facebook page shows the two candidates posing together.
