It seems Linda McMahon's McMillions have bought her a 13 point deficit behind Attorney General Richard Blumenthal (link: http://i2.cdn.turner.com/... ). After spending $20 million digging one of the bigger holes in the midterm elections this year, what's a girl to?
Wave the white flag and have the Chamber of Commerce ride to the rescue in their foreign bought luxury jetliner, of course!
This week, the business group has begun running a spot targeting Democrat Richard Blumenthal and his "job-killing lawsuits."
"We hear from our small business members about the impact and consequences of frivolous lawsuits so that's what we're trying to highlight,'' said J.P. Fielder, spokesman for the Chamber. "Our ads are going to focus on economic issues and how they're goign to impact job-creation."
Fielder would not disclose how much the ad buy is, saying only that it is "significant."
I'm shocked, shocked I tell you that the Chamber of Commerce "would not disclose" information on how much money they're spending or where that money's coming from. Might their sudden interest in this race have something to do with...oh, I don't know...the minimum wage?
Or could it be about protecting the incentives companies get for outsourcing jobs overseas?
If the Chamber of Commerce wants to have this fight about putting profits before people, I say bring it on. Linda!'s spin hasn't convinced many skeptical nutmeggers so far to side with her against their own self-interest, regardless of how many millions of dollars she's used to broadcast it.
