Senate Democrats gave up some seats on Election Day, but not in Connecticut. In today’s Congressional Corner, Connecticut U.S. Senator Chris Murphy speaks with WAMC’s Ian Pickus, sitting in for Alan Chartock.
Democratic U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy has won a second term in office, defeating a little-known Republican small businessman. Murphy had amassed a war chest 100 times bigger than Matt Corey, who runs a high-rise window clean business in Hartford. It was a marked difference from his 2012 victory, when Murphy defeated former professional wrestling executive Linda McMahon, who spent about $50 million of her own money on the race.
