Campaign Notebook: McMahon Changes Image to Win Voters

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.


The Associated Press took a look at the closely-contested race for Senate and finds that Linda McMahon’s attempts to change her image from that of a “groin-kicking CEO to grandmother” have been paying off.

Chris Murphy, her opponent, said that voters need to be reminded why they voting against her in her failed 2010 Senate bid.

Fourth District

Jim Himes and Steve Obsitnik are scheduled to debate several times in October, with debates planned on Oct. 10 in Stamford, Oct. 18 in Norwalk and Oct. 28 in Wilton.

The Wilton debate is being organized by a dozen local chapters of the League of Women Voters and is scheduled for 4-5:30 p.m. at Wilton High School.

“The Leagues of Southwestern Connecticut—the 4th Congressional District—have joined forces to present a centrally-located forum for area residents to learn the candidates’ positions on national and local issues, particularly those impacting our region,” said debate facilitator Jara Burnett of LWV Greenwich.

The questions at the debate will be solicited from the audience and League members.
