Editor's Note: Both Democrat Chris Murphy and Republican Linda McMahon were offered opportunities to sit down with an editorial board at Hersam Acorn Newspapers. Mr. Murphy, citing his schedule, agreed to a phone interview. Ms. McMahon's campaign did not respond to several requests for an interview.
