During a taping of “Face the State” Republican candidate for senate Peter Schiff did not hold back when it came to Richard Blumenthal. The Weston businessman said Blumenthal is not trustworthy and intentionally lied, not misspoke when he said he was in Vietnam.
“He misspeaks about a lot of things.” When you are a professional politican and that’s what he has been all his life lying comes very natural. Blumenthal’s credibility will be an issue in the campaign.”
And Schiff had more to say about Blumenthal. As for his Republican opponent Linda McMahon, Schiff was kinder, but not much. He said “she was writing wrestling scripts, I was writing books about the economy,” and suggested she had an apathy toward politics before her senate campaign was launched. Schiff also said McMahon can’t beat Blumenthal and that many Simmons supporters will turn to him because “they don’t like Linda.”
You can watch the Schiff interview this Sunday morning at 11AM. We also have Quinnipiac University polling guru Doug Schwartz in to talk about the new poll.
We can also tell you Blumenthal and McMahon have committed to be on “Face the State” next month. Tune in Sunday for details.
