Linda McMahon Senate Campaign: WWE Queen Says She'll Spend $50 Million To Win Connecticut Race (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Connecticut's getting ready to rumble as WWE queen Linda McMahon, wife of WWE founder Vince McMahon and also one time CEO of the billion-dollar wrestling association, says she's willing to spend up to $50 million of her own money in a bid to become the next U.S. senator from that state.

According to McMahon, she's willing to finance the campaign herself because she's refusing to take money from special interest groups. She has never held political office.

She's running as a Republican for the seat being vacated by Chris Dodd, who will retire in 2010.
