Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton says US Senator John McCain will be in Danbury October 1st to campaign for Linda McMahon . McCain will be at the Disabled American Veterans Hall.
Linda McMahon's efforts to change her image appear to be working. A Quinnipiac University survey shows her race virtually tied with three-term Democratic congressman Chris Murphy, and McMahon has narrowed her 20-point deficit among women in 2010 to just 4 points now.
The former wrestling executive is shifting her image from groin-kicking CEO to grandmother in her second bid for a Senate seat from Connecticut.
Democrats are pumping in money for attack ads to help slow McMahon's momentum.
The more motherly McMahon contrasts with her image in 2010, when a video showed her appearing to kick a man in the groin as part of a skit.
The Connecticut race is a bright spot for Republicans struggling to gain the four Senate seats they need to win the majority.
