And here's some more Simmons, from the Associated Press
"She's the Republican candidate, right," asked Simmons, when questioned why he was now backing McMahon. He is also scheduled to appear with her at a rally in Mystic on Wednesday.
While he criticized McMahon's campaigning style in the past, such as avoiding interviews with newspaper editorial boards, Simmons acknowledged that McMahon's approach seems to be working.
"Different candidates do it different ways," he said, later adding, "she spoke without notes, which I think is a positive development."
McCain had previously endorsed Shays in the contest. We've noted before that Shays was not a McMahon fan, and that after the primary he said
he didn't respect the way she ran the race. Murphy was expected to win easily in Democratic-leaning Connecticut, but the race has looked close recently and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has been on the air in the state.
