Campaign Notebook: Formica Hosts 'Super Saturday'

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut: Murphy quiere Latinos.

Second District

Paul Formica (R) is holding a daylong campaign event tomorrow and has dubbed it "Super Saturday."

Senate

Chris Murphy (D): The Senate race is practically a tie according to some polls, and Murphy is seeking an edge by courting Latino voters in Connecticut. According to the Associated Press, Murphy’s campaign plans to run advertisement and Spanish and work in Latino neighborhoods to get out the vote.

The Associated Press notes that Connecticut’s Latino voters lean Democratic, but more than 40 percent are unaffiliated.

Linda McMahon (R): There was some better-than-expected economic news on Friday when the national unemployment rate dropped to 7.8 percent – the lowest rate since January 2009.

Linda McMahon issued a statement blaming U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy for some of the nation’s problems.

"Today's jobs numbers, while a step in the right direction, highlight Congressman Murphy’s continued failure to do anything that puts America back to work,” McMahon said. “With the national unemployment rate continuing to hover around 8% and Connecticut's unemployment rate currently at 9%, it’s clear that the policies Chris Murphy has supported during his six years in Congress have only contributed to our economic woes instead of solved them.”
