McMahon U.S. Senate campaign spending hits $42.6 million [View all]

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut’s Republican Senate candidate, former businesswoman Linda McMahon, is coming close to matching the $50 million she spent on her unsuccessful run for Senate in 2010, new campaign finance records show.

Documents filed with the U.S. Senate and obtained Friday by The Associated Press show the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, now WWE, has spent $42.6 million. On Tuesday, she loaned her campaign $3.3 million more. Much of the money has been spent on television advertising.

McMahon spent $50 million of her own money in the 2010 race she lost to Democrat Richard Blumenthal. She said afterward she wouldn’t have to spend nearly as much on a second campaign because she would be better known by voters.


I couldn't care less how much money she spends but $93 million and she will have nothing to show for it.
