Linda McMahon (R): The candidate found agreement with President Obama that the Bush era tax cuts should be extended for the middle class.
"Last week's jobs numbers reminded us that no matter what career politicians may say, our economy is still sluggish and middle-class families are hurting. We should not be raising taxes on anyone right now," McMahon said in a statement.
She added, "I am the only candidate with a plan to cut taxes for the middle class, while Congressman Murphy has a long record of raising taxes on the middle class."

Wayne Winsley (R): The candidate shared a message on Facebook from a woman who donated $50 to his campaign.
"I believe in you Wayne. Lets win in November, you're the right candidate for the hard working people of CT," she reportedly wrote.
