Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon is urging Connecticut voters to cast their ballots for both her and Democratic President Barack Obama, who holds a double-digit lead in the state.
Several people in the ad say they will vote for Obama and McMahon, who is in a tight race with Democratic Rep. Chris Murphy.
Murphy tells the Associated Press that any suggestion that McMahon would work with Obama is a "lie." McMahon opposes Obama's health care legislation and has criticized him and Democrats for the weak economic recovery.
A McMahon spokesman said that while McMahon supports Republican Mitt Romney, she is willing to work with anyone. McMahon's name appears on both the GOP and independent lines of the ballot.
