Round 2: McMahon, Murphy Stick to Familiar

By Mark Pazniokas

Storrs—With well-practiced moves and occasional flashes of spontaneity, Democrat Chris Murphy and Republican Linda McMahon counter-punched over each other’s character, intellectual depth and commitment to women’s reproductive health tonight in their second U.S. Senate debate.

Murphy scored the only applause line of the night when McMahon launched into an ill-timed attack on his ethics: At the time, she was responding to a question about whether personal attacks are crowding out issues.

“I think you asked Linda McMahon if she was going to stop the character assaults,” Murphy said. He paused, smiled and waited for effect.

The crowd at the University of Connecticut’s Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts laughed, then applauded, prompting the only rebuke of the night from the moderator, Al Terzi of FoxCT, which sponsored the debate with the Hartford Courant and UConn.
