U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy (D) on the campaign trail questioned Linda McMahon (R)'s commitment to supporting abortion and gay marriage.
"We already know that Linda McMahon tends to tell the tea party one thing and social conservatives one thing and Connecticut voters something different," Murphy said in a conference call with reporters, according to the New Haven Register.
The Associated Press reports that Peter Wolfgang, executive director of the Family Institute of Connecticut, said online that he's voting for McMahon, "because her victory could mean the end of Roe v. Wade" even though she supports repealing the Defense of Marriage Act.
The comments from Wolfgang prompted Murphy's criticism. McMahon's campaign dismissed the allegations that she's anti-abortion as "absolutely ridiculous," according to the New Haven Register.
Rosa DeLauro (D): The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is transferring $152,000 in a grant to the Grant Street Senior Apartments in Bridgeport.
"This grant is great news for the seniors and persons with disabilities who will be better able to access the services they need to live independently," DeLauro said in a written statement. "Our government has an obligation to help the most vulnerable among us live with dignity and this grant will further that goal."
