Shoreline Plus: Republicans line up behind Blumenthal

In an open letter to the people of Connecticut, several Republicans today highlighted their strong support for U.S. Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal while laying out serious concerns regarding Republican nominee Linda McMahon.

“We are putting aside partisanship to support and vote for Richard Blumenthal because we know we can count on him to fight for us in Washington. We don’t agree with him on every issue, but we know him to have guts and know-how, and a proven track record of delivering for our state,” the six Republicans wrote.

They continued, “Linda McMahon presents her business experience as her principal qualification for office and we find that experience instead to be disqualifying. She has repeatedly demonstrated unacceptable values and practices in that business, including the marketing of extreme violence, abusive treatment of women, and sex to young children. She refuses, even now, to acknowledge the long-term health risks of steroid use, despite medical evidence.”

The full letter is below.

In addition to the letter, the Blumenthal campaign today also announced that more than 75 Republicans have pledged their support and started “Republicans for Blumenthal.”
