News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut

Senate

Linda McMahon (R): A Quinnipiac University poll shows McMahon with a three-point lead in the Senate race.

Chris Murphy (D): Murphy’s campaign continues criticizing McMahon. A statement released earlier this week questioned McMahon’s stances on social issues.

"Connecticut families deserve to know: will Linda McMahon join her party and vote in favor of the anti-choice, anti-birth control leadership if she is elected to the Senate?" said Taylor Lavender, spokesperson for the Murphy campaign. “If she won't commit to voting against anti-choice, anti-woman Republican leaders like Mitch McConnell and Roy Blunt, then a vote for Linda McMahon is a vote to end a woman's right to choose and to end legal birth control." 

Third District

Rosa DeLauro (D) joined Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in a year after Tropical Storm Irene devastated the coastal area. The area is still rebuilding.

Wayne Winsley (R) is opening his campaign headquarters in Stratford on Friday at 6 p.m.
