McMahon Knocks Out Opponents in GOP Senate Primary, Eyes Blumenthal
Linda McMahon, the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, was the last woman standing Tuesday in a battle royal – this time in the political arena.
McMahon won the GOP primary in Connecticut, crushing money manager Peter Schiff and former Rep. Rob Simmons, the one-time favorite who suspended his campaign months ago but recently ran an ad reminding voters his name remained on the ballot.
I think Connecticut was going to be a tough win but with Chris Dodd's troubles and Blumenthal's confusion over his military service the state was not unattainable. Can the GOP win with the founder of a wrestling organization?
