FILE - A June 14, 2012, file photo shows Connecticut Republican Senate candidate, former Rep. Christopher Shays, during a debate with former wrestling executive Linda McMahon, in Storrs, Conn. Shays and his Washington-based GOP establishment supporters say McMahon's chances of winning in November aren’t any better this time around than they were in 2012 in a Democratic-leaning state like Connecticut.
