GOV. RELL IN NEW RADIO AD FOR MCMAHON

Gov. Jodi Rell is finally off the sidelines in this election cycle, endorsing Republican Linda McMahon for US Senate. In a new radio ad, Rell extols McMahon’s “outsider” status and her purported ability to “shake up Washington.”

Rell, who wouldn’t even endorse or campaign for her own lieutenant governor, narrates a surgery-sweet ad that concludes with an attempt to convince listeners that McMahon “is a nice person.” Well, that ought to put McMahon over-the-top.
