Murphy criticized for fundraising email tied to gun violence donations

Senator Chris Murphy's reelection campaign sent out an email blast Tuesday night urging supporters to give money to three gun control groups in the aftermath of the shooting in Las Vegas. But the 4th giving option was to his reelection campaign.  ActBlue allows contributors to designate where their contribution should go, and what amount.  His email talked about gun safety and stopping gun violence, without mentioning that his re-election campaign was listed as an option.  ActBlue removed it as of yesterday, but not before criticism from state GOP party chairman JR Romano.  He called Murphy a political opportunist who is trying to raise his name recognition to run for president.  Two Republicans have filed papers to challenge Murphy in 2018.
