Re­pub­li­can Matthew Corey has in­vited his op­po­nent, Sen. Chris Mur­phy, D-Conn., to join him for a day wash­ing win­dows in Hart­ford.

Corey, a Navy vet­eran who touts his blue-col­lar roots, emailed Mur­phy’s cam­paign of­fer­ing to pay Mur­phy for a day’s la­bor or donate the money to a vet­er­ans char­ity, if Mur­phy works with him on Fri­day, Satur­day or Sun­day.

“Af­ter 12 years in D.C. of just rais­ing taxes and spend­ing tax­pay­ers’ money, it is time for Chris Mur­phy to learn what it is like to earn a day’s wages,” Corey said in a state­ment.

Mur­phy’s cam­paign re­ceived the email Fri­day morn­ing, said spokes­woman Laura Maloney. Mur­phy had two pre­vi­ously sched­uled events Fri­day.

Corey, a Manch­ester res­i­dent, has owned a win­dow wash­ing busi­ness for more than two decades. He said he has dan­gled off the side of nearly every sky­scraper in Hart­ford with his crews.
