Chris Murphy (D) and his supporters are attempting to paint Linda McMahon (R) as an anti-woman, Tea Party activist with similarities to Sarah Palin. A press conference in Hartford with Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman and other women sought to “highlight the dangers of wrestling mogul Linda McMahon's reckless, anti-women record and agenda,” according to a press release.
The McMahon campaign called it a “campaign stunt direct from fantasyland.”
“Congressman Murphy’s Factory of Falsehoods continues to manufacture claims that are not only beyond belief, but are easily discredited,” McMahon campaign manager Corry Bliss said in a statement. “The facts are: Linda McMahon is a pro-choice candidate who supports access to contraception. Congressman Murphy’s continued insistence that Linda is anything other than pro-woman is ludicrous.”
The Greenwich Time looked into the Democrats’ criticisms of McMahon. They found lukewarm support of McMahon from the Tea Party.
