Elizabeth Esty (D): Members of Connecticut's Congressional delegation will officially endorse Elizabeth Esty for Congress at a press conference at the Democratic Party of Connecticut's headquarters in Hartford on Tuesday.
Esty, of Cheshire, was also recently endorsed by Gov. Dannel Malloy and other Democratic office holders as well as labor leaders.
The Record Journal reports that Chris Donovan, who lost the Democratic primary, reached out to Esty for the first time. They discussed the Working Families party, which endorsed Donovan earlier this year and he still remains on the ballot for the party.
Andrew Roraback (R): The Register Citizen reports that Roraback’s pro-choice beliefs aren’t in sync with the national Republican Party.
The Chris Murphy campaign goes on the offensive with a new 30-second ad that criticizes Linda McMahon’s history with the WWE and her jobs plan. The narrator opens the ad with, “As CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, Linda McMahon had a plan. Shift profits overseas to avoid U.S. taxes.”
McMahon’s camp said that the ad is “misleading.”
“Perhaps Congressman Murphy should take a few courses in international business where he would learn all about how international companies earn profits internationally and pay their taxes to the countries in which they are doing business,” said Corey Bliss, the McMahon campaign manager.
