WWE CEO Linda McMahon May Run For Dodd’s Senate Seat
World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Linda McMahon, wife of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, is strongly leaning toward challenging Chris Dodd for in his 2010 senate race. McMahon would run as a Republican.
“A decision is imminent, and she will likely make a decision over the next couple of days,” said a Republican strategist. “It will be made sooner rather than later.”
One well-placed source said McMahon is “99 percent” in. Another said the announcement could come as early as Wednesday.
The second source noted that she has done polling on the race and hired consultants Mike Slanker and Patrick Sullivan. She has also brought on former National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) spokesman Ed Patru to help with early communications.
McMahon has been a supporter and contributor of Republican Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell.Click here for reuse options!
