Shawn McCoy, a spokesman for Linda McMahon, tells Battle ‘10 he’s hearing the same things about turnout in Connecticut: It’s higher in Republican areas and lower in Democratic ones. “I think that having those two congressional races over there [in the fourth and fifth districts] — having them be close and having them drive turnout is a big boost to us,” McCoy says. “We’re seeing good turnout in precincts all across the state, especially Trumbull. I know there are some long lines there.”
McMahon voted in Greenwich at 6:30 a.m. this morning. Today, she’s visiting several polling stations throughout the state. Earlier this morning, she greeted voters at different stations with Republican mayors and Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele.
“Linda has proven to be a strong candidate,” McCoy says. “I think this could be the biggest upset in the country tonight.”
