Republican Senate nominee Linda McMahon distanced herself from Mitt Romney’s comments declaring that 47 percent of Americans are voting for President Obama because they want government entitlements.
“I disagree with Governor Romney’s insinuation that 47 percent of Americans believe they are victims who must depend on the government for their care,” said McMahon, who is running for Senate in Connecticut, in a statement Tuesday.
“I am sympathetic to the struggles that millions of Americans are going through because I’ve been there. As a young couple Vince and I lost our home and our car. With two small children it was not an easy time for my family.”
