Yahoo.com has an article up talking about Linda McMahon winning the GOP Senate primary on Tuesday night.
The article talks about McMahon winning she after spent almost ten times as much as her opponent and $61 million over the course of two campaigns to try to win the seat for U.S. Senator of Connecticut. In 2010, she broke Connecticut state records for personal spending when she tossed out $50 million of her own money in a losing effort.
So far this time, McMahon spent over $11 million of money to beat Christopher Shays who only spent $1.2 million.
MyFoxNY.com reports slightly higher numbers. They claim McMahon spent $15.7 million of her own personal money and says she is at a total of $66 million over the course of the campaigns.
After the race was over Tuesday night, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee immediately attacked McMahon.“Linda McMahon is a greedy CEO who made millions marketing sex and violence to little kids, all at the expense of the health and safety of her own employees,” said Executive Director Guy Cecil.
“Everything about McMahon’s record, principles and agenda prove that she is wrong for Connecticut. There isn’t enough money in the world to convince Connecticut voters otherwise."
