As expected, Linda McMahon is one step closer to becoming a U.S. Senator after yesterday she easily won the Republican Primary vote against Chris Shays.
With 87% of the precincts reporting before 10PM yesterday, Linda McMahon had 74% of the votes compared to 26% of Shays according to the Stamford Advocate.
Come November, she will be facing Democrat Chris Murphy for the Senate seat which currently belongs to Senator John Leiberman.
“I just fundamentally don’t believe that Linda McMahon can paper over her record as CEO of the WWE with a lot of money,” Murphy said. In his victory celebration immediately after the Primary, Murphy gave McMahon his first shot saying to his supporters that McMahon made “billions off of selling sex, violence and drug abuse” as WWE Chief Executive Officer.
Funny enough, according to the Stamford Advocate, Murphy left the stage at his celebrations to the RAW theme song “Tonight Is The Night” by Outasight.
McMahon held her celebrations at the Hilton Hotel which is – again, funny enough – owned by the father-in-law of McMahon’s last opponent and current Senator Rich Blumenthal.
Her supporters were treated to an open bar, antipasti, pretzels, bruschetta, and sliders at the hotel according to the newspaper.
Her mother and daughter, Stephanie McMahon-Levesque, accompanied Linda.
