HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) â€” Linda McMahon, the Republican candidate in Connecticut's close Senate race, is leaving campaign literature on Democrats' doors, urging them to vote for Democratic President Barack Obama and McMahon on the independent line.
The flyers come on the heels of a McMahon TV ad that targeted voters splitting their ticket but didn't directly urge people to support Obama.
Todd Abrajano (ah-brah-JAH'-noh), McMahon's campaign spokesman, said McMahon "enthusiastically supports" Mitt Romney for president and is not endorsing Obama. But Abrajano said the campaign decided to educate Democrats that it's okay to split their ticket, accusing McMahon's opponent, Democratic U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy, of telling people it's illegal.
Murphy campaign spokesman Eli (El-ee') Zupnick called McMahon's accusation "a lie."
