Campaign Notebook: Chamber Poll Shows McMahon Leading

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut including a big Formica announcement coming today.

Second District

Paul Formica (R) says he "will be announcing a major national endorsement" tomorrow.


The back and forth results of the polls continue. The latest poll, commissioned by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, has Linda McMahon leading U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy by three points, reports Politico. Six hundred likely voters were polled on Oct. 1 and 2 and the margin of error is four points.

The Chamber of Commerce endorsed McMahon, and her campaign described the endorsement as a “a clear rebuke to Chris Murphy’s record on business issues in Congress.”

Murphy’s campaign dismissed the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as a right-wing organization.

“It's no surprise that the national group that favors the [vice presidential hopeful Paul] Ryan plan to privatize Medicare, rolling back Wall Street reform, and new tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, would also support right-wing Republican Linda McMahon," said Murphy campaign spokesman Eli Zupnick in a written statement.
