Worried that city residents might be paying attention to a high-profile TV ad that urges voters to choose Republican Linda McMahon and President Obama on election day, minority leaders spoke up for Democrat Chris Murphy Friday afternoon.
The unusual ad by the McMahon campaign has attracted national attention. It features minority voters declaring that they plan to vote for both McMahon and Obama, who have little in common.
As the senate race approaches its final week, McMahon continues to spend freely on TV ads. She is also expected to finance a substantial get-out-the-vote effort on election day.
