HARTFORD - Linda McMahon and Chris Murphy spent the day hoping to win a few last-minute votes in their Senate race.

They are running for the seat held by the retiring Sen. Joe Lieberman.

McMahon is running for the Senate for the second time. She lost two years ago to Richard Blumenthal.

McMahon, who spent millions of her own money on her campaign, says she thinks she got her message out and showed people what she stands for.

U.S. Rep. Murphy has been in Congress since 2006. He received support from President Barack Obama, who recorded a campaign commercial in support of Murphy. No other Senate candidate this year has received this kind of aid from the president.
