Shays, Tong plan to release tax returns as well

Following U.S. Rep./Senate candidate Chris Murphy’s earlier announcement he’ll release his tax returns to the media Wednesday, colleague Neil Vigdor and I reached out to the other major candidates vying for the office.

A spokesman for state Rep. William Tong, D-Stamford, who, like Murphy, is seeking the Democratic nomination, said Tong will also release his returns.

And a staffer for ex-U.S. Rep. Chris Shays, who is competing with Linda McMahon for the GOP nomination, said her man will one up Murphy and release his tax data tomorrow.

We’re still waiting to hear from McMahon and Democrat Susan Bysiewicz.

UPDATE: Bysiewicz is also on board, according to a spokesman.
