(CNN) – Connecticut Republican Senate nominee Linda McMahon is getting a little extra help from Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown.
The two will hold a rally Saturday afternoon that campaign spokesman Shawn McCoy said will "get volunteers fired up." McCoy said voters in Connecticut feel the same frustration that led to Brown's win in Massachusetts.
"That's the same kind of energy we have behind Linda's campaign," McCoy said. "People are upset and frustrated and want something Different in Washington."
Earlier this year, Brown won a Senate special election to fill the seat held by Sen. Ted Kennedy before his death.
The rally comes as the ad wars in Connecticut are heating up between McMahon, the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment and state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal. The latest ad from the Blumenthal campaign says that McMahon puts "profits before people." And McMahon's new ad uses footage from a recent debate to attack Blumenthal on his jobs plan.
The Blumenthal campaign used Saturday's event as an opportunity to paint McMahon as an extreme conservative and tie her to the Tea Party movement and Sarah Palin.
"We can't wait to see what she says today," Mindy Myers, Blumenthal's campaign manager said in a statement.
The latest CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corporation Poll shows Blumenthal with a 13-point lead over McMahon.
Brown's office did not immediately return a request for comment.
