Connecticut: Blumenthal campaign worried their voters are not turning out
Wireupdate ^ | November 2, 2010 | By Joe Brooks




Low supporter turnout for Richard Blumenthal has forced the campaign to send out an alert Tuesday afternoon urging supporters to get out to the polls.

“Voter turnout appears to be heavy in areas that benefit our opponent,” The campaign email read".” It is critical that we maximize our efforts to get our supporters to the polls. We need your help”

Blumenthal is running against Linda McMahon in a highly publicized campaign for US Senate in Connecticut. The Real Clear Politics average of all national pulling has Blumenthal leading McMahon by 9 points, however that lead has been shrinking in recent weeks.

Polls close in Connecticut at 8PM ET.

After all the crap thrown her way, and knowing the absolute meltdown it would case the far left and the RINO's, seeing her win would make me smile.

wouldn't it be great if they did a homestate show where Linda and VKM come out and cut a promo along the lines of "You banned WWE shirts near polling sights, you accused me of bad business practices, you accuse me of putting out a product that is bad for kids.....well you ain't seen nothing yet!"

The following is a new blog entry from Blog.CTNews.com:


Linda breaks her silence: What’s $50 mil?
November 8, 2010 at 5:18 pm by Neil Vigdor

Linda McMahon emerged from her witness protection-like vanishing act Monday to give Hearst Connecticut Newspapers one of her first interviews since losing to Democrat Richard Blumenthal in Connecticut’s bitter Senate contest.

A one-woman stimulus package for political consulting, direct mail and television advertising industries, McMahon said she she no second thoughts about spending $50 million of her wrestling fortune on the race, a record for Connecticut.

“So I don’t regret any of that, at all,” McMahon said in a phone interview from her pad in Boca Raton, Fla. “I was making an investment to serve and I think that’s a really good thing. I think you have to go into any kind of endeavor knowing what your downside is when you get into it.”

While her $50 million did not translate to a victory, McMahon said it did buy her name recognition that she can parlay if she decides to run for office again.

“I do not think I would have to spend anywhere near that amount of money,” McMahon said. “No one knew who I was. I made an investment and I certainly would not have to do that again.”

McMahon made it no secret that she is eyeing public office, though she wouldn’t specifically say which direction she will go.

“Sure. I’ll be moving forward this next year,” McMahon said. ”I have a couple (of avenues) to pursue. You’ll have to stay tuned.”

McMahon confirmed that she has no plans to return to her post as chief executive of Stamford-based World Wrestling Entertainment, which took a beating from her political opponents in the primary and general election phases of the campaign.

“Look, WWE was attacked throughout my campaign, and I believe the company had certainly not only the right but the obligation to put forth information to correct mistakes and errors that were out there,” McMahon said. “I thought all that was beneficial, not harmful.”

Another juicy morsel from our conversation was when McMahon, discussing the ballot shortage in Bridgeport and ruling to keep the polls open an additional two hours there, said she has a hard time believing that there weren’t isolated instances of voter fraud throughout the state.

“I thought it was reprehensible what happened in Bridgeport, and I still think that we have voter fraud that happens throughout our state,” McMahon said.

McMahon emphasized that any isolated causes of voter fraud would not have altered the outcome of the Senate race, however.

The following is a new article from TheHill.com:


Linda McMahon doesn't rule out 2012 run against Lieberman

Republican Linda McMahon, who spent some $50 million of her own money in a losing bid for the Senate this fall against state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal (D), is already eyeing 2012.

During a taping of "Face the State with Dennis House" on Thursday, McMahon wouldn't rule out a run saying, "I'm not taking anything off the table." Her full interview is set to air in Connecticut Sunday.

McMahon will also be up with a statewide TV spot next week thanking those who supported her in 2010.

A large part of McMahon's appeal to some GOP insiders in the state in 2010 was her ability to self-fund and it helped her defeat former Rep. Rob Simmons (R-Conn.) at the state party convention earlier this year.

But after spending $50 million in a losing effort during an otherwise favorable political environment for Republicans, McMahon would have a lot of convincing to do ahead of 2012 if she decides to make another run.

As for Lieberman, many on the left are salivating at the chance to take him out in two years with some eyeing Rep. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) as a challenger.

Speculation has also swirled around Ted Kennedy Jr., who lives in Branford. Earlier this year Kennedy Jr. demanded that McMahon pull a campaign ad that included a clip of his uncle — President John F. Kennedy — talking about tax cuts.

And, I thought this thread was dead...


RassmusenReports.com is reporting that Linda McMahon is curently leading her Senate race opponent claiming 49% of the vote. The following is an excerpt from the report:

Quote
A new telephone survey of Likely Voters in Connecticut shows McMahon with 49% of the vote to [Chris] Murphy’s 46%.  One percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
