Campaign Notebook: 'Over-the-Top’ Senate Ads Attract National Attention

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.

Senate

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.

According to the article:

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.

Fourth District

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.

Sooooo sick of these "finger-pointing", negative ads! I want to hear what you are going to do for me and how do you plan to do it! And, the money spent on all this ridiculous advertising ( I get four-color, very expensively printed propaganda from a "certain" Senate candidate almost on a daily basis), could be spent on so many more useful and needed areas. I kind of wonder how much our deficit could have been reduced if the country had put all this campaign excess toward paying it off!
