Former Republican presidential nominee and current Arizona Senator John McCain has made a U-turn and is now supporting Linda McMahon in her bid to win the senate seat in November.
This past June, McCain sided with McMahon’s fellow Republican opponent Christopher Shays after McMahon won the nomination, McCain switched alliances and will now be appearing for the former WWE CEO at her Norwalk field office on October 1.
Linda McMahon – who according to polls is leading a narrow gap for the election – was again the center of controversy after the Democrats pointed out that WWE will release the Attitude Era DVD and Blu-Ray right after the election, and this after going to great lengths to remove the edgier videos from that era from YouTube so they cannot be used against her in ads.
The Stamford Advocate newspaper writes that WWE spokesman Brian Flinn said that the video release will be rated PG to reflect “the company’s family-values marketing of recent years.”
In her TV advertising, Linda McMahon is distancing herself from touting the fact that she was a successful CEO to that of being a grandmother in an attempt to make her more likable to potential voters.
