Linda McMahon and Chris Murphy won’t be debating until next month, so in the meantime a battle on the airwaves will have to suffice. Murphy’s campaign released a TV ad that paints McMahon as a selfish CEO who laid off workers at the WWE.
McMahon released a new radio ad saying that Murphy, “isn’t reaching across the aisle — or looking out for Connecticut jobs.”
Jim Himes (D) and other members of the Connecticut delegation issued a statement announcing that the Greater New England Minority Supplier Development Council will be opening a Bridgeport location with $100,000 in federal funds. The organization will “focus on providing business consulting and deal-making services to Native American and Alaska Native Business Enterprises throughout the country. “
“This new location will provide invaluable resources to minority business owners in Bridgeport and beyond, and I look forward to working with local businesses to connect them to these opportunities,” Himes said.
Steve Obsitnik (R) issued a statement about the killing of the Libyan ambassador and his staff.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the three American staff members killed in Benghazi, Libya," Obsitnik said. "Ambassador Stevens was a dedicated public servant whose life's work was promoting democracy around the world."
