Connecticut: Cappiello Airs First Ad in Race With Murphy

Posted September 10, 2008 at 6:28pm

State Sen. David Cappiello (R), who is challenging freshman Rep. Christopher Murphy (D), has released his first television advertisement of the election cycle.

In the 30-second spot “Together,” Cappiello’s Democratic wife highlights her husband’s bipartisan track record in his political career.

“I like the Red Sox. He’s a Yankee’s fan,” Christine Cappiello said in the ad. “I’m a Democrat. He’s a Republican. From the moment we met, I could tell David was someone who could work well with people from all walks of life. I see it all the time. David is always reaching out, listening, and putting politics aside to make Connecticut a better place for our family, and yours.”

Murphy won his seat by 10 points in 2006 against longtime Rep. Nancy Johnson (R), and he is favored to win a second term.
