Linda McMahon spends over $28 million for second Senate bid

The Associated Press has a story about Linda McMahon’s campaign spending, listing her total for this race to more than $28 million according to the latest finance records obtained on Friday.

The $27 million – in addition to the $50 million she spent in her failed bid in 2010 – brings her total to over $78 million, a staggering amount for any individual running for Senate. McMahon did not accept donations in her first bid and funded the campaign solely from her own pocket.

Linda McMahon, the former WWE Chief Executive Officer, spent around $22 million more than her opponent, Democrat Chris Murphy, in this campaign.

While McMahon’s total of $78 million is a ridiculous amount of money, it pales in comparison to what former eBay CEO Meg Whitman spent in 2010 for her bid to become Governor of California. Whitman spent an astonishing $142 million for her campaign and still lost!
