The campaigns of Linda McMahon and Chris Murphy are apparently providing some unintended laughs throughout the country. A Yahoo News article looks at some of the livelier television advertisements and mailers sent out by the campaigns.
If there were any doubts that the tone of the Connecticut Senate race has become one of the most negative in the country, a glance at either side's abusive and sometimes wacky campaign ads should clear them up.
Jim Himes and Steve Obsitnik talked at a forum in Stamford on Wednesday. The candidates, according to the Connecticut Post, “differed on ways to continue the nation's emergence from the shadow of the crippling five-year recession.”
Obsitnik blamed Himes’ policies for the slow recovery. Himes said the economy would have collapsed if Republicans had their way.
