In the final hours of her campaign for U.S. Senate, Connecticut’s Linda McMahon — running on the ticket as a Republican — is asking voters to cross party lines.
A McMahon handout shows a “sample ballot,” with boxes checked for McMahon and President Barack Obama. It’s the second piece of McMahon campaign literature appealing to Obama voters. A door-knocker showing pictures of McMahon and Obama asks reads, “President barack Obama and Linda McMahon will fight for us.”
But Todd Abrajano, a McMahon spokesman, told the Associated Press Sunday that the candidate “enthusiastically supports Mitt Romney for president.”
McMahon and her husband, Vice McMahon, have also given a considerable amount to Mitt Romney — $150,000 to the pro-Romney SuperPAC Restore our Future — and other Republican candidates, including House Speaker John Boehner, as reported by the CT Post in September.
