No matter how hard they try to distance themselves from the Pro Wrestling stigma, they can’t and probably will never do that. Also, she has reportedly spent about twice as much as any other Senatorial campaign in the country so there might be some unemployed wrestlers in a few weeks.

Former wrestling executive Linda McMahon holds a narrow lead over Democratic Congressman Chris Murphy in Rasmussen Reports’ first look at Connecticut’s U.S. Senate race.A new telephone survey of Likely Voters in Connecticut shows McMahon with 49% of the vote to Murphy’s 46%. One percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.
Murphy voted in favor of President Obama’s health care reform law and has publicly stated that the law will save money on Medicare. When it comes to the future of Medicare, 44% of Connecticut voters are scared more by the president’s health care law than the reform proposal by Mitt Romney’s running mate Paul Ryan. But just as many (43%) say they are more scared of Ryan’s proposal on Medicare. Connecticut voters are more evenly divided on the question than voters are nationwide.Eighty percent (80%) of Connecticut voters who fear the health care law’s impact on Medicare more support McMahon. Murphy is backed by 77% of those who fear Ryan’s plan for Medicare more.
Seems like the Linda posts gained some traction over the weekeend. Here's the next chapter of the saga – apparently the offending editorial never used WWE by name and the WWE's threat of lawsuit could actually end up being a really big campaign No-No since Linda doesn't technically work for them anymore. Really, just good times all around for the WWE in its home state.
