A new poll out today from the University of Connecticut and the Hartford Courant shows Senate candidates Chris Murphy and Linda McMahon in a virtual dead heat. It’s the second recent poll to show a tight race in a Senate contest long thought to favor Democrats.
Congressman Murphy’s lost ground due to a series of blistering ads from the McMahon campaign - and fallout from unflattering stories about foreclosure actions against him - and a home loan he got. He’s been fighting back by hitting McMahon’s record as CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment. Oh, and did she really just get involved in the Presidential race?
Mark Pazniokas of the Connecticut Mirror will give us an update.
Also, Steve Goode of the Courant tells us about an unusual state house race.
