Found November 07, 2012 on Wrestlechat.net:
Democratic Rep. Chris Murphy is the projected winner against Linda McMahon in Connecticut’s U.S. Senate race, according to The Associated Press and NBC News. The Associated Press called the race for Murphy just 30 minutes after the polls closed, as he was leading 54% to 45%. The former WWE CEO spent $50 million of her personal fortune in her failed 2010 campaign against Richard Blumenthal, and is believed to have spent $42 million against Murphy. Between both campaigns, McMahon has now spent a cumulative total of over $90 million in pursuit of federal office. That is more than any other American in history. An article on McMahon’s loss is available here. The Connecticut Mirror reported last night that that Linda has already said she will not run again in 2014. Linda was joined last night by Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H and others as she gave her concession speech.
