From Team Murphy:  Get To The “Debate” Tuesday 8/21, at Polish National Home

Linda McMahon’s televised saturation campaign of lies against Chris Murphy, her refusal to meet with editorial boards and her debate-delaying tactics got a quick response from Team Murphy last week.

There will be a debate with or without the Republican Lady hiding behind the trash-talk advertising this week. And New Britain Democrats and friends are urged to attend the first Senate debate/rally of the fall campaign on Tuesday, August 21st starting at 5:30 pm at Hartford’s Polish National Home, 60 Charter Oak Avenue.

From Team Murphy: “As some of you may have seen, we challenged Linda to a debate about jobs on Wednesday morning. We went out and booked halls all over CT telling her we’d meet her anywhere. Not surprisingly she declined because she knows her jobs “plan” gives her and people like her a $7 million tax cut and cuts services and programs regular people rely on.

To make the point that she is afraid to debate Chris on the #1 issue of this campaign, we’re having a “debate” anyway at one of the places we booked and are turning it into a rally.  Linda has spent nearly $2 million on TV alone in the past two weeks blasting Chris with attack ads. That’s more than Chris’ 2010 Republican opponent spent on his entire campaign. The only way we beat her this November is to beat her on the ground at the grassroots level.”

Let’s have a strong New Britain contingent on debate night
