Mayor Finch has some fun with Linda’s tracker

Trackers are hired by campaigns to follow an opponent and record his or her public appearances with a video camera, hoping to capture something that can be used against them.

Republican Linda McMahon and Democrat Chris Murphy both employ trackers in their battle for the U.S. Senate.

McMahon’s tracker tagged along with Murphy and his supporters earlier today as the candidate toured small businesses in Bridgeport.

Mayor Bill Finch, who showed up late after attending another event, immediately had a bit of fun with McMahon’s staffer.

“Hi Linda,” he waived into the camera.
