Enfield Mayor Scott Kaupin and New Milford Mayor Patricia Murphy cited McMahon’s business expertise and success in creating jobs as reasons for their support.
“We need leaders in Washington who have a good business sense, and we have that with Linda McMahon,” Enfield Mayor Scott Kaupin said. “With her business expertise and her commitment to communities like Enfield, I know she will be the best choice to represent Connecticut.”
