Linda McMahon doesn’t see herself running for public office again

Nov 9, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck

Speaking to Business Week, former WWE CEO Linda McMahon said that she
doesn’t see herself running for public office again although things can
always change. McMahon is fresh off a second – and much wider – defeat in
the Senate elections, having blown almost $100 million for the two
campaigns spanning over 4 years. For the first campaign in 2010, McMahon
did not accept any donations and funded the whole thing with her own money
to a tune of $50 million. “I feel really good about what I’ve
accomplished. I think people were more thoroughly convinced the second
time around that I was passionate about these issues,” McMahon said. When
asked about running again, McMahon said she gave it a really good and
strong shot but it didn’t work out. “At this moment, it’s not a
consideration. Things can always change but it’s not something I
anticipate right now.” She noted that she discovered that she lost this
year’s election when she was sitting by herself while she was gathering
thoughts of would would be a victory speech. She said she saw on ABC that
Chris Murphy’s name popped up as the winner just 40 minutes after polls in
Connecticut closed, leaving her “stunned for a moment.”
