And is hoping this smackdown attorney general Richard Blumenthal in the next eight days and become the next -- -- it's senator from the state of Connecticut.
And McMahon joins in Stamford Connecticut fresh off the campaign trail out now with -- invited attorney general Blumenthal on the -- always welcome he has thus far declined.
-- -- Good evening Greta how are you.
I'm -- are you yellow bus smackdown today wind the -- and mr.
-- coming from Canada and Molina press conference to explain what happened and why he came from Canada hold a press conference.
His son of course murdered his seven year old child and -- a couple years back was I WW me.
Well I think that -- shows Greta it's politics as usual.
The Blumenthal campaign paid for mr.
-- want to come down a putting -- -- a hotel.
And I think it's you know clearly and in -- to try to be -- a distraction from the real issues that are facing the people here in Connecticut.
And the voters in Connecticut are looking for jobs available for the economy to turn around and is -- -- Crispin lost father down here for a press conference today is just.
They're pretty I think pretty reprehensible.
What does I don't get isn't the polls show him what this it would mr.
Blumenthal is right now the sizable leads you don't have to -- -- you know reached that far down that something could backfire on -- -- -- I -- -- that's what surprised me about it.
Clearly heard -- he's not can't run his record of creating jobs he's not done any thing you know for the economy in Connecticut.
And I think he's just trying to be.
Then again that the distraction from the real issues that I hear -- I'm all around the state talking to people here and I say I want to go back to work.
They want to get our economy back on track Connecticut -- -- -- nine point 1% just slightly below the national average.
And we've got put people back to work in the private sector and I've been saying that since I got into this rice.
Why in that resonate with the Connecticut voters the nine point 1% unemployment meanwhile why isn't de LYE having a hard time gain traction on that mission.
Well I think it is resonating with the the people in Connecticut you know Scott Brown was down fifteen points nine days out from the election and I think this election will be decided on November 2 it's tight it's a horse race but we're gonna be victorious on November 2.
Do you think.
Far a woman CEO and raising his -- in in this says this election season we have Carly Fiorina pound former CEO and we have -- -- also foresee a rather large companies humanist CEO of a large company -- seven new phenomena we're seeing the CEO women.
Is that race in anyway tilted in now -- from the -- or anything did that women have a -- Iraq right -- not.
Well you Richard Blumenthal has been -- part of -- public -- here for over twenty years I'm part of that he was in the state legislature.
So want you know he's got a big head start to recognize ability and I've been playing catch up but closing.
Closing that gap -- -- really fast and I'm I'm pleased with where we are in the race and I would just gonna keep pedal to the metal -- through Tuesday.
Right now you spent an awful lot of -- your personal money -- and explain to me a lot of canons do this who have pressed on when he.
Weren't they spend as sizable one of their money for a job -- the return -- lesson to learn does not messy Leo lassie is number is 102030.
Million dollars -- people are spending.
For a 200000 dollars or less job why do you do that.
I can tell you Greta I've you know I've got into this race -- just because I was really concerned about where.
Our government was taking our country and I decided to spend the money I had earned and to not take any up packers' special interest money so I would know any favors in Washington.
And that's what I've done as I said you know Richard -- -- -- had a twenty year leave in terms of recognize ability you can imagine.
If you had to pay for all the free media he's had over twenty years it would -- -- a lot more than the money I've spent.
So I was willing to make that investment to to run in this race and and I'm not going to take a salary as a senator.
So why is there's there's not a return of the salary for -- I'm really going to be.
A citizen legislator and our alliance -- you know commit my own my own funds for that.
If you should lose this race come Election Day and why do you think at a -- I do believe it's gonna really revolve around voter turnout so I would encourage.
All of our voters in Connecticut just to make sure they're getting to the polls there they're talking to their friends and their neighbors and that we do have a good voter turnout.
We're going to win this I think on the ground game.
But it's a lot of volunteer effort it's a lot of door knocking and so any of those folks have a life like to volunteer we we welcome them to the campaign.
Well we're going to be watching very carefully because it certainly is exciting race your race as well as many other race across the country.
This is one fascinating -- mid term election -- for joining us.
And -- good luck.
Thanks so much better.
