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”
NORTH HAVEN, CT
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
