Chris Shays may be headed for defeat in three weeks, but he’s making sure to plant some land mines that will explode in the general election.
It may not matter to the Republican faithful that Shays believes that Linda McMahon cannot win the general election and he won’t vote for her if he loses. But Shays’ brutal, bitter dissection of Linda in the video clip from the New Haven Register below could go a long way to convince on-the-fence independent voters who to support on election day in November.
This is a warning from the grave that will haunt the McMahon campaign for months to come. Make no mistake, there are prominent Republicans who agree with every frustrated word Shays utters here.
