More Jobs Talk In Senate Race, One Day After Debate

By SUSAN HAIGH, Associated Press

MERIDEN, Conn. (AP) _ Republican Linda McMahon and Democrat Chris Murphy talk a lot about their plans to grow jobs as they campaign for Connecticut’s open U.S. Senate seat, even though many of their ideas have been floated by others and it’s questionable whether they’ll become law.

On Monday, Murphy continued to ramp up his criticism of McMahon’s jobs plans, accusing her of lifting entire paragraphs and sentences from various Republican groups.

During a debate on Sunday, McMahon scolded Murphy for accusing her of plagiarism, saying the plan is her own and she properly cited every word.

Both candidates’ plans include proposals that are being touted across the country, such as investing in infrastructure and cutting corporate taxes on job-creators.

However, Murphy acknowledged the Senate is unlikely to pass either plan in its entirety.
