The Chris Murphy campaign goes on the offensive with a new 30-second ad that criticizes Linda McMahon’s history with the WWE and her jobs plan. The narrator opens the ad with, “As CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, Linda McMahon had a plan. Shift profits overseas to avoid U.S. taxes.”
McMahon’s camp said that the ad is “misleading.”
