Murphy, McMahon Acting Like Frontrunners

Neither frontrunner has engaged yet, despite the attacks. While McMahon's campaign defended her work with WWE, it was actually the company, not the candidate, that hit back hard against Shays, releasing a letter Tuesday pushing back on the former congressman's claims. And Murphy's campaign manager Kenny Curran explained that Murphy "supported at least three other efforts to close the tax loophole between 2007 and 2009 but the 2010 bill was too expensive" -- and declined to strike back at Bysiewicz or even mention her. So while Shays and Bysiewicz are trying to bring the fight, for now the frontrunners seem content to let the under-funded underdogs nip at their heels.
