I write in response to The Day's June 10 editorial, "Had no time to miss her."
The one piece of real news that prompted this editorial is in the ninth paragraph - polls show her tied with Chris Murphy, the Democratic endorsed candidate.
Ms. McMahon's "unexpected" rise to be within the margin of error almost 5½ months ahead of the election; leads to a logical question for the Democratic Party.
Maybe the same virus that infected moderate Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, independents to come together in Wisconsin, has broken out here in Connecticut. The virus lays dormant in all of us. It has two cells; one is "truth," the other "honesty." Hearing either one activates the virus.
Reasons given to raise doubts about her ability and character are; she is spending too much money on advertising, her employee's don't meet the clothing standards of The Day. She has no experience in politics.
No prior experience in elective office is a reason to vote for Ms. McMahon. Her experience in running her successful business makes her credible. She appears tough, truthful, and honest and is not afraid to invest her own money, which shows self-confidence. All pretty good stuff.
The conservative virus is alive and growing in Connecticut.
