Here is a (Republican) update on Chris Murphy’s ’96 campaign in CT-5.

This year, Nancy Johnson’s got the best GOTV effort she’s ever had. I hear she’s going positive with a look-in-the-camera ad. There is an air of pessimism among some workers who’ve never been through a tough fight with her before; the last one was 2002 when she was redistricted into a race with a Democrat incumbent from the consolidated district. They believe, however that they can run even with Murphy in Waterbury. The shrewd young Democrat may have a serious mistake by suggesting to Waterbury Democrats he would punish them for the city for Democratic mayor’s reluctance to campaign for Murphy. The ugliness was duly reported Thursday in the widely read Waterbury Republican-American.

Do you we have any Murphy campaign workers who can provide a different perspective?
