Despite a huge amount of money (most of it from her personal fortune) and a Republican wave, former World Wrestling Entertainment Chief Executive Officer Linda McMahon couldn’t manage to pull off a senate win last year against Democrat Richard Blumenthal, who won with a vast majority of the vote.
But McMahon remains undaunted. Now she’s declaring she will run again, this time for another open senate seat in the state. This go-around she has a rather formidable primary opponent, former Republican Congressman Chris Shays, and even if she gets the nomination, she will be running during a presidential election year — something likely to bring out way more voters in this Democratically leaning state.
Still, that doesn’t seem to be scaring her off. Perhaps she has another $40 to $50 million to spend and no place better to spend it.
