We’ve seen the candidates debate, stump, shake hands and star in commercials. Next week you’ll see them cook.
Senate candidate Linda McMahon and gubernatorial candidates Tom Foley and Dan Malloy have all agreed to appear on “Better Connecticut” next week, separately, of course. After all, there are frying pans and knives within arm’s length! One candidate will not appear. Dick Blumenthal declined the invitation, according to “Better” producer Melissa Dethlefsen, who told me the campaigns were given a choice of days to come on.
McMahon, Foley and Malloy will join Scot Haney and Kara Sundlun in the kitchen and show off their culinary skills while chatting about their lives and campaigns. The menu is being determined and it may be the candidate’s favorite family recipe.
It is also an opportunity for the candidates to reach the voting bloc of women, who make up the vast majority of “Better Connecticut” viewers.
