“I talked to mainly people who were totally apolitical … they didn’t talk too much about Russia,” Chris Murphy said on Tuesday.
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) who recently completed a walking tour of Connecticut admitted that during this five-day tour his constituents didn’t talk about the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election during an interview on MSNBC on Tuesday.
MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell asked Murphy about what he found out during his recent walking tour of the state.
“Yeah, I spent five days walking 110 miles, from the Rhode Island border to the New York border,” Murphy explained. “I talked to mainly people who were totally apolitical, and they didn’t raise Afghanistan, obviously [Trump’s] speech hadn’t happened [yet], but they also didn’t talk too much about Russia.”
“They talked about health care primarily, that was loud and clear, the most important issue to them. They talked about the quality of their kids’ schools, how much money they were earning in their paycheck,” Murphy said.
Murphy has in the past been critical of Democrats for their obsession with the Russian investigation, calling it a distraction.
