 Murphy Hopes Distortion-Filled TV Ads Will Rescue Campaign
New ads from Murphy and his Washington allies cannot cover up Murphy’s failed record; McMahoncampaign responds with new radio ad entitled “Rough Few Weeks”
Linda McMahon campaign manager Corry Bliss today issued the followingstatement in response to two new television ads from Congressman Chris Murphy and the DemocraticSenatorial Campaign Committee:
“Congressman Chris Murphy and his Washington cronies are sa
dly mistaken if they think they canresuscitate his flailing U.S. Senate campaign by spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on false andunsubstantiated television attack ads. The people of Connecticut will see these ads for exactly what theyare: a desperate congressman and a bunch of Washington insiders trying to manipulate Connecticutvoters in an effort to guarantee another go-along, get-along politician another term in office.
“It’s no surprise that Congressman Chris Murphy’s special in
terest pals are willing to come to his rescueby echoing his own baseless, negative attack ads, considering he has spent almost his entire adult life asa professional politician voting how his leaders tell him to vote 98% of the time. We should all assume
that Congressman Murphy’s record of follow
-the-leader will continue if he were to be elected to theU.S. Senate.
“How ironic that the DSCC is attacking Linda McMahon’s record of creating hundreds of Connecticut
-based jobs when their own candi
date, Congressman Chris Murphy, hasn’t created one single job in his
entire life. Even worse, since Chris Murphy was sworn in as a member of Congress, the number of unemployed workers in Connecticut has more than doubled from about 81,000 to more than 163,000.
It’s shameful that Connecticut’s unemployment rate now outpaces the national average, and ChrisMurphy has done nothing to reverse the state’s sinking job market during his six years in Congress.
“Considering Chris Murphy’s failed record
in Congress, no one should be shocked that Linda McMahon isthe only candidate that has put forward a comprehensive, detailed Jobs Plan centered on a middle-classtax cut that will put an extra $500 a month in the pockets of the average Connecticut family next year.
Assertions that Linda’s Jobs Plan provides tax cuts for anyone other than middle
-class families are false
and are simply an attempt to distract from Congressman Murphy’s recent vote to raise middle
taxes. Linda’s plan will have absolutely
no effect on her taxes. None. Under her plan, Linda will payexactly the same rate next year that she paid this year; claims to the contrary are misleading and basedon faulty Washington math.
“Ultimately, no matter how much money the Washing
ton insiders decide to waste propping up theethically challenged Congressman Murphy by mimicking his own ad buys, their dollars will never changethe fact that he has failed to come up with a jobs plan after nearly 5,000 days in elected office; hemissed nearly 80% of his work meetings while collecting his $170,000, taxpayer-funded salary; and hebenefitted from his position in Congress by obtaining a home equity line of credit at a below-market ratefrom a bank that contributed to his campaign and received a $400 million bailout in the TARP bill
Congressman Murphy backed. Connecticut voters are rightly outraged by Congressman Murphy’s recordand will likely make that outrage known on Election Day.”
 In addition tothe above statement from Bliss,
the McMahon campaign today released a new radio ad entitled “RoughFew Weeks”
 The ad, a directresponse to the false, negative ads from Congressman Chris Murphy and the Washington insiderssupporting him, outlines the facts about both Linda Mc
Mahon and Chris Murphy’s records.
“Apparently for Congressman Murphy, desperate times call for desperate measures,” Corry Bliss, LindaMcMahon campaign manager said. “All the falsehoods and all the distortions about Linda cannot change
the fact that Congressman Murphy skipped nearly 80% of his committee meetings and used his position
to get a special home loan deal.”
 The radio ad, transcribed below, will begin airing statewide today.Click here to listen to the new radio ad.MCMAHON RADIO :60
It’s been a
rough few weeks for Congressman Chris Murphy.First came therevelations that during the financial crisis, Murphy skipped nearly 80% of his committee hearings.Thennewspapers reported Murphy was sued for not paying both his rent and his mortgage.But somehowdespite his bad credit rating, after Murphy was elected to Congress, he got a special, below market
loan… that ordinary people couldn’t g
et.So now,Murphy is attacking Linda McMahon with lies and distortions.But here are
the facts: like most American businesses, Linda’s company did lay off some workers in the 2009recession. But Linda’s com
pany recovered and now employs more people than ever before.Every employeeis offered excellent benefits, including health insurance.
And Linda’s tax
plan only cuts taxes for the middle class
Linda’s own t
axes would not change at all.So rememberthe truth when you see the Murphy attacks.
