01/15/10 PRESS RELEASE: The end of anything goes

Linda McMahon For Senate

Dear Greenwich Roundup --

Rob Simmons is getting nervous. The 38-point lead he enjoyed in September has all but evaporated, according to this week's Quinnipiac Poll. He can't win on the issues because his voting record is grossly out of step with mainstream Republicans. So he's resorted to false attacks on Linda.

'Candidate' Simmons claims he opposes the positions he took in Congress. So which do we believe? Simmons' actions while in Congress or his words now as a candidate in a Republican primary? Actions speak louder than words.

As a career politician, Rob built a record of standing with liberal Democrats in Congress to support budget-busting, job-killing legislation. He twice co-sponsored Card Check legislation, a bill that would force workers to sign a union card in public instead of voting by secret ballot. He partnered with liberal California Democrat Henry Waxman in co-sponsoring Cap-and-Trade climate change legislation, a bill that would raise energy costs in Connecticut, even though the state's energy costs are already among the highest in the nation.

In Congress, Simmons routinely earned 'C' and 'D' grades from the National Taxpayer Union because he voted for more than 350 bills that increased spending and only 13 bills that cut spending. He twice voted to raise the federal debt ceiling ... by more than a Trillion dollars!

It's no wonder Simmons doesn't want to talk about issues. Instead he's been misleading Connecticut voters for months by falsely claiming Linda has only voted twice in her life -- even though he knows it isn't true.

Simmons' False Campaign Attacks: "[Linda McMahon] voted only twice in her life" and "Because of [Linda's] failure to vote more than twice in her life...Republicans have reason to question [her] commitment to the Republican Party."

The Truth: According to the Greenwich Registrar of Voters, Linda "has been a registered voter [in Connecticut] since October 9, 1984 and has voted in the following elections: 11/07/2000, 11/5/2002, 11/2/2004, 11/4/2008 and 11/3/2009." It's important to note that Greenwich only keeps voting records going back to 2000.

Linda has been up front with the voters regarding her voting record from the day she announced. She is not running away from her record. Why is Rob Simmons so intent on tearing her down instead of building himself up or discussing HIS record?

Simmons has clearly made a strategic decision to employ an 'anything goes' approach, however dishonorable and deplorable the tactics may be. His deceptive attack on Linda's voting record is patently false, dealing a huge blow to Rob Simmons' credibility.

Linda believes Connecticut voters deserve the truth, not more of the same kind of slash-and-burn politics we've come to expect from career politicians.

She is running for Senate because only an outsider with real conservative values can be trusted to change Washington's failed economic policies.

01/15/09 Greenwich Resident Ned Lamont Reaches Out With "A Very Real Possibility"

Dear Greenwich Roundup --

"The early favorite" to win a potential primary.

"A very real possibility" to become the next Governor of Connecticut.

That's how some in the national press have
described our efforts in just the last few days. They're calling us the "early favorite" because they see that Connecticut wants new leadership that won't be tied to entrenched interests and that will be able to shake up state government and get us back on track.

Town support and small contributions have already made a huge difference. But we are going to need you on the team in a committed way if we're going to make this "possibility" a reality -- whether that means taking a leadership role in your town, hosting an event, or signing up to volunteer.

Please take one minute right now to sign up to get involved with Lamont 2010.

Back in November, I announced I was exploring this race because I believed Connecticut needed an outsider with the willingness and ability to bring entrepreneurial leadership to state government, not another politician focused more on the past than on the incredible challenges our state will face over the next four years.

While the last few weeks have seen some potential candidates enter and others leave the stage, my conviction that Connecticut needs a fresh start with this type of leadership has not changed -- it has only grown stronger.

But I know that in order to succeed, I'll need you by my side.
That's why I'm asking you to show your support by signing up to get involved today.

Please sign up here to get involved with Lamont 2010.

All my best,


P.S. -- We have all been shocked and heartbroken by the effects of the earthquake in Haiti. My thoughts continue to be with the people of Haiti and with so many in Connecticut who have loved ones affected by this tragedy. Right now, the best way to help is to give to one of many organizations who are involved in relief efforts on the ground. Please give if you can:

Partners In Health:

Red Cross:

Or donate $10 to the Red Cross (charged to your cell phone bill) by texting "HAITI" to "90999."

Lamont 2010 Exploratory Committee, Marc Bradley, Treasurer
