How many millions has Linda McMahon spent?



The Associated Press has a story about Linda McMahon’s campaign spending, listing her total for this race to more than $28 million according to the latest finance records obtained on Friday. The $27 million – in addition to the $50 million she spent in her failed bid in 2010 – brings her total to over $78 million, a staggering amount for any individual running for Senate. McMahon did not accept donations in her first bid and funded the campaign solely from her own pocket. Linda McMahon, the former WWE Chief Executive Officer, spent around $22 million more than her opponent, Democrat Chris Murphy, in this campaign. While McMahon’s total of $78 million is a ridiculous amount of money, it pales in comparison to what former eBay CEO Meg Whitman spent in 2010 for her bid to become Governor of California. Whitman spent an astonishing $142 million for her campaign and still lost!

    You forgot the most important thing she’s spent on these campaigns. The happiness of all WWF/E fans.

    Insane. What a waste. So many other ways she could have spent her money that would actually make a difference. Politics in the USA is simply revolting with how much money is spent on elections. Seriously the country is in crisis and money is overriding common sense and good policies.

    Very well said Mike.

    Does kinda show, if anything, that she really wants that senate seat. I just hope she’s doing it for the right reasons.

    If you’re unhappy with the amount of money being spent in politics today, blame the Republicans. They were the ones that pushed for the Citizen United ruling. The Democrats were opposed to the Citizen United ruling though of course, they too have to spend an obscene amount of money today to keep up with the Republicans.
