Linda McMahon’s campaign staff quickly jumped on a compliment Richard Blumenthal paid to President Obama for his fundraising speech last night. After Obama’s talk, Blumenthal told him, “Great job.”



No thumbs up from McMahon.


In a press release today, the McMahon campaign took the remark as though Blumenthal was referring to the Obama presidency.

It also included a photo of Blumenthal giving the president a thumb’s up.

How quickly will that be in a mailer or a TV commercial?
