It’s a big day for Linda McMahon today as today is Primary Day with Connecticut voting for their next U.S. Senator. Polls will open till 8PM tonight and McMahon is expected to win the Primary after she received backing from the Republican party to be their choice for the November election.
“It’s time to restore America’s promise of opportunity, and we need a proven job creator who understands the needs of hardworking families and small businesses to represent us in Washington,” a message on her website by her campaign manager reads.
“Linda has walked in our shoes and has a plan to get America working again. She will cut taxes for the middle class, level the playing field for America’s job creators, and cut Washington’s reckless spending. That’s the kind of leadership we need. And we need your vote to make that happen.”
Two years ago, the former WWE CEO also won the Primary but then lost the election to her Democrat opponent by 11%. She spent over $50 million of her own money in that campaign, refusing to accept certain donations, although this time around she has been collecting money to avoid the backlash that she was trying to buy the election.
