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.
