Home » WWE News » Linda McMahon Smacked Down On Election Day – Loses Connecticut Senate Race

Democratic Rep. Chris Murphy is the projected winner against Linda McMahon in Connecticut’s U.S. Senate race, according to The Associated Press and NBC News.

The Associated Press called the race for Murphy just 30 minutes after the polls closed, as he was leading 54% to 45%.

The former WWE CEO spent $50 million of her personal fortune in her failed 2010 campaign against Richard Blumenthal, and is believed to have spent $42 million against Murphy. Between both campaigns, McMahon has now spent a cumulative total of over $90 million in pursuit of federal office. That is more than any other American in history.

  • ashterk

    OMG she is jus like a writer in wwe and vince she expected the voters to 4get the fact she has no experience in politics or found any success in anything outside of wrestling. And in wrestling its not even her success its Vince and his fathers. All she managed to do successfully involving wrestling was use money from it to lose. Yeah vince did this to go pg and expected ppl to 4get all the shit that went on in the attitude era and the ruthless aggression era in wwe. Typical.

    This is a step for all talent, staff, writers etc. Next all empolyee of WWE. have to stand up and form a union so that Mcmahon can’t trample on anymore worker rights. Enough is enough and the Mcmahons need to know that.

  • Will Henderson

    now that Linda lost, can we please say the words “Sexual Relations” when talking about the AJ Lee scandal on WWE TV please. we all know that’s what you are trying to say but were to scare to say sexual relations due to Linda’s senate run and being to kid friendy.
