I’ve written on this blog about former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Peter Schiff inviting Linda McMahon, who beat him in the GOP primary, and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal onto his new radio show before Election Day.
Schiff’s producer, Tom Elliot, doubted Blumenthal would take them up on the invite, and he was right.
They had higher hopes for McMahon. However that fell through as well, and has caused some hard feelings.
“But unlike McMahon, they (the Blumenthal campaign) never pretended he was coming on,” Elliot told me via e-mail.
Perhaps if Schiff had offered to allow her to bake a pie…
To be fair, Blumenthal stiffed Schiff AND declined to bake a pie or cook some other dish.
I reached out to the McMahon camp but so far have heard nothing back.
