Linda McMahon Has Lots Of Money


But, money does not necessarily equal landslide victories. Exhibit A:
Wrestling maven Linda McMahon easily captured the GOP Senate nomination in Connecticut Tuesday, but if she thought free spending in a deep-blue state was the sole path to November success, her results showed that money isn't everything.

McMahon spent $22 million for a come-from-behind convention victory, but still fell just short of topping the 50 percent mark in Tuesday’s three-way Republican primary.

And that was against one opponent who’d dropped out and rejoined the race three weeks ago, and another with virtually no name recognition and even less cash.
Exit question(s): How long will it be before Hulk Hogan is running for political office? How about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson?
