Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Chris Murphy’s latest TV ad hits a theme he has been striking for several weeks now: That his Republican opponent Linda McMahon is a greedy CEO who doesn’t care about Connecticut’s middle class and is pushing an economic plan that would give her a $7 million tax cut.
“I’m the son of a public school teacher. I was taught to work hard and play by the rules. But there’s a problem in Connecticut today. People like Linda McMahon – they create their own rules. Enriching themselves at the expense of the middle class,” Murphy says.
The ad cites McMahon’s leaders at WWE, where, Murphy says, “she hired lobbists to gut health protections for her workers.”
