NORTH HAVEN, Conn. (AP) – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon’s campaign has pledged to knock on 10,000 doors and make 10,000 phone calls to voters in one day.
More than 600 volunteers are expected to participate in “Super Saturday.” The campaign says McMahon will also travel the state, make calls and knock on doors.
McMahon lost the 2010 U.S. Senate race after spending $50 million and has made it a point in this year’s election to show she’s focusing more heavily on grass-roots campaigning.
She faces a primary challenge on Aug. 14 from former U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays.
Shays’ spokeswoman Amanda Bergen said her candidate has been “doing this for months” and it “is another example of a staged event by Linda McMahon.”
Shays is making stops in Darien, New Canaan, Middlefield and Guilford.
