Bysiewicz’s 1st primary ad focused on women, legislative past

Ex-Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz’s campaign just provided the media with a preview of an advertisement the campaign will begin airing Saturday morning.

Bysiewicz is competing with fellow Democrat  U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy in their party’s August primary for U.S. Senate.

She’s been attempting to portray Murphy as a friend of Wall Street executives and millionaires. According to the latest poll from Quinnipiac University, that line of attack hasn’t been working.

The ad makes no mention of Murphy, Wall Street, a primary or Linda McMahon, the GOP’s endorsed candidate for U.S. Senate.

It instead focuses on mastectomy legislation Bysiewicz co-sponsored in 1997 as a member of the General Assembly, two years before she became Secretary of the State.

Bysiewicz’s campaign manager, Jonathan Ducote, in a statement said, “Tomorrow morning, our campaign will be launching its first television ad to highlight Susan’s record of getting things done and show how her advocacy has impacted the lives of so many people around Connecticut in real and meaningful ways.”
