WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) _ New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the latest nationally known politician to get involved in Connecticut’s close Senate race.
The Republican is scheduled to appear with former wrestling executive and GOP candidate Linda McMahon at three campaign rallies on Monday afternoon. The pair is scheduled to make stops in Stamford, Waterbury and Glastonbury.
McMahon’s campaign has said Christie plans to talk about why “strong, independent voices” like McMahon’s are needed in Washington.
McMahon is in a close race against Democratic Congressman Chris Murphy.
They are vying for the seat held by the retiring Sen. Joe Lieberman, an independent.
Also on Monday, McMahon is kicking off another weeklong jobs tour. She is scheduled to visit nearly 20 small businesses to hear about the challenges owners, managers and employees face.
