STAMFORD - State Republicans are headed to the polls today to determine their candidate for Senate in November.

Linda McMahon is facing off against Chris Shays in hopes of replacing Joe Lieberman.

McMahon was the party nominee two years ago who lost to Richard Blumenthal.

She cast her ballot this morning at North Street School in Greenwich.

Shays spent more than 20 years in Congress and says he hopes the voters send him back to Washington.
