Some Republicans charge McMahon betrayed GOP, say they won't vote for her
Calling Linda McMahon "a sellout" for pushing voters to cast their ballots for both her and President Barack Obama, a number of Republican leaders are abandoning the GOP's U.S. Senate candidate.
Joe Visconti, a former congressional candidate from West Hartford, issued a long statement today blasting McMahon and urging Republicans not to vote for Linda McMahon. He said they could write in "Benedict Arnold" instead.
He said her advertising campaign "systematically and deliberately sells out the" Connecticut GOP.
The state Republican headquarters has been bombarded with calls from frustrated, angry party loyalists who want McMahon to pull the ads.
