Hartford, Connecticut 9:08 a.m. - Maybe the third time's a charm for Connecticut Democratic senatorial nominee Richard Blumenthal who has had a hard time offering a clear answer about government's role creating jobs.
When his opponent Linda McMahon asked him in a debate Monday night "how do you create a job," he offered a meandering reply explaining jobs can be created "in a variety of ways by a variety of people." He went on assert government can help preserve jobs by providing more capital to small businesses, tax policies that promote job creation and intervention by government to help promote American-made products.
It was so close and yet so far for Connecticut's two Senate candidates. About a mile and a few hours separated Democrat Richard Blumenthal and Republican Linda McMahon Wednesday as they both campaigned in Waterbury.
Blumenthal stopped for some lunch and glad-handing at City Hall Cafe. The candidates could easily have crossed paths, as McMahon has frequently visited City Hall during campaign stops. Not today, though. They will see each other soon enough as they face off in their second debate Thursday morning.
Around the same time, McMahon was touring small businesses. Later, she went to New Opportunities, which provides weatherization and energy assistance, housing and shelter services and programs for the elderly.
Economic issues dominated Monday night's Connecticut Senate debate between Democratic nominee and state attorney Richard Blumenthal and Republican nominee Linda McMahon, the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment.
The candidates butted heads over taxes, job creation and spending.
