Linda McMahon Beats Christopher Shays in A WWE Smackdown 730-389 At GOP Convention


Could WWE nation provide the Nutmeg State with their first female US Senator ever?

Linda McMahon, the former WWE CEO, gave fellow GOP’er a smack down at the Republican state convention Friday night as she beat Christopher Shayes 730 to 389. However, the battle will continue against her rival Shayes until the Connecticut August primary.  McMahon said she intends to focus her campaign on Chris Murphy, the Democrats’ endorsed candidate, but will also continue to target Shays. “Chris Murphy and Chris Shays have very similar voting records. The November election will be a  battle royal for the retiring Joe Liberman’s US Senate seat.

Republican delegates at their state convention Friday night once again put their faith in U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon, although her contentious battle with rival Christopher Shays will continue until a mid-August primary.

McMahon, the former CEO of WWE, received 60.4 percent of the vote. Shays netted 32.2 percent, easily meeting the threshold — 15 percent of the total — to force a primary.

Linda McMahon said following her overwhelming victory:

“We’re going to send the first woman senator to Washington in the history of Connecticut,” she said in the speech that she said she would have made from the podium. “Connecticut, we’re tired of waiting.”

“We know our economy is not working because Americans are not working,” McMahon said. “We are going to move Washington out of the doldrums that it’s in. … We are going to get people back to work and get our economy stimulated.”

      Good for Linda. You don’t accomplish what she has by being a backbencher.

      Chris Shays is pretty soft. It is time that the GOP gets some real backbone.

      I honestly do not care at all for her Father, Vince McMahon, but this is one tough Lady.

      Good for her, and don’t stop now, Linda.
      SM: Actually Vince is her hubby. What better experience is their for politics than to be the CEO of a professional wrestling company.

      Wow, I didn’t know Vince was her Hubby. Well, the thing about him is, he puts on such an act for the WWE.

      You can’t take away from the fact that he is an astute businessman who has successfully built an empire. I did, however like Vince’s Father whose name escapes me now.

      Have to say, I do like Linda, very much. Every time I have listened to or watched her on TV, she is impressive.

      Good for her and keep on going!
