  • Connecticut Republicans applaud Jeb & McMahon gets award

    WRAL ^ | SUSAN HAIGH
    Republicans, to be seen as a young and dynamic political party, must present a positive agenda that restores opportunity for social mobility and reforms the nation's immigration policies, former Florida governor and possible 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Thursday. Bush, appearing at a major fundraiser named after his late grandfather U.S. Sen. Prescott Bush, received loud applause from the crowd of nearly 800 Connecticut Republicans for his immigration reform stance.

    Most Americans will focus on election results in Ohio and Florida to see who rides those states’ Electoral College votes into the White House. But the winner of the presidential race will not automatically control the 2013 legislative agenda. Congress still matters. The battle for control of the U.S. Senate is vitally important and just as hard-fought as the top-of-the-ticket contest. Currently, a caucus of 51 Democrats and two liberal Independents rule the upper chamber. Since the Vice President can cast tie-breaking votes in the Senate, Republicans would have to pick up three seats to gain a working majority...
  • Linda McMahon in Connecticut: She's Baaaaaack!

    American Thinker ^ | 09/22/2012 | By Stuart Schwartz
    Linda McMahon, the tenacious and successful business executive, who two years ago beat the Republican establishment in the U.S. Senate primary in Connecticut, is shaping up to be a nightmare for Connecticut Democrats. The candidate for U.S. Senate threatens an upset of their anti-business, redistributionist, and nanny-state agenda in a state they have taken for granted. In Connecticut, as in neighboring Massachusetts and New York, it's long been what the Democrats want, the Democrats get. But polls show that McMahon has been "unexpectedly" pulling ahead -- mainstream media-speak for "we sure hate to report this, but integrity demands an occasional...

    Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) came out in opposition to Mitt Romney's controversial remarks on the "47 percent." Brown, who has been distancing himself from elements of the Republican Party, joins GOP Senate candidate in Connecticut Linda McMahon in coming out against the statements. "That’s not the way I view the world. As someone who grew up in tough circumstances, I know that being on public assistance is not a spot that anyone wants to be in. Too many people today who want to work are being forced into public assistance for lack of jobs," he said in an email to...

    Connecticut's Linda McMahon has Democrats nervous about losing another blue-state Senate seat. Connecticut might be the last place you'd expect Republicans to pick up a U.S. Senate seat this November, but it may happen. In the race for retiring Sen. Joe Lieberman's seat, Linda McMahon, the co-founder of the highly profitable World Wrestling Entertainment, leads Democratic Rep. Chris Murphy by three points, according to the latest Quinnipiac poll. Those numbers terrify Democrats, so much so that at the party's convention in Charlotte, N.C., this week they frantically shuttled Mr. Murphy around town to meet deep-pocket Democratic donors. Connecticut hasn't had...

    Okay, I have a question: How can Obama be ahead in states where the Democrat Senate candidates are behind. I'll give you an example: Connecticut. In that state, the Republican Senate, Linda McMahon, leads her Democrat opponent by 3 points according to the polls yet the polls also show CT as solid for Obama. How can that be? How does Obama run AHEAD of the Democrat Senate candidate? I see similar situations in other states, such as Wisconsin, where Obama is supposed to be ahead yet the Democrat Senate candidates are behind.

McMahon’s campaign accused Blumenthal’s of cooperating with the women’s health organization in election activities. While nonprofit and for-profit groups can spend money on campaigns, a result of the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, they are not allowed to coordinate efforts on paid political advertisements.

    Contrary to a previous IBD prediction, Connecticut GOP Senate candidate Linda McMahon did not catch Democrat Richard Blumenthal by late September. While a Quinnipiac poll last week showed the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) narrowing the state Attorney General’s lead to three points, three new polls give Blumenthal leads of 7, 10 and 12. Worse for McMahon, Blumenthal is polling above 50% in all three. McMahon has been hitting Blumenthal in recent weeks for distorting his Vietnam record. That may be backfiring. These polls are a blow for Republican hopes to retake the Senate.

    I always thought that, for a Democrat, Connecticut's Joe Lieberman was a-ok. Before becoming Al Gore's 2000 running-mate, Joe was known as a relatively conservative Democrat from a deeply blue state. For example, Joe supported school choice and was a big proponent of aggressive military procurement. He supported the wars (which caused the liberal blogosphere to explode with fury and misused big words). More than anything, Joe was/is the one person on the Democrat caucus who understands the iron rule of geo-politics: you must help your allies (e.g. Israel) and punish your enemies (e.g. Syria).

    The numbers of the CT US Senate race. Public Policy Polling has just released their new numbers for CT-Sen. A stark contrast to what they had been. When Chris Dodd retired last night his seat went from one of the most vulnerable to one of the safest for Senate Democrats. Attorney General Richard Blumenthal leads all three of the Republicans in the race by at least 30 points in polling we conducted Monday and Tuesday night before Dodd's announcement.

    osh Stewart-jstewart@longislandpress.com 02/10/2006 11:54 am Newspaper editors rarely ask potential reporters if they’re up on the latest pro wrestling storylines. After a recent story in the Boca Raton News, maybe they should. The paper reported on the alleged misconduct by World Wrestling Entertainment Chairman Vince McMahon, who has been accused by a tanning salon employee of groping her and trying to kiss her late last month in Florida. But the final line of the story claimed that McMahon was “reportedly” seeking a divorce from his wife, Linda McMahon, the CEO of WWE. A Press search showed no recent reports about...
