McMahon: The Epitome of Attempting to Buy a US Senate Seat

Back in April, when The Shad was asked by some reporter friends what I thought of Linda McMahon making another run for the US Senate, I said, “In for $50 million, in for $100 million.” I was only half joking, referring to McMahon’s $50 million-plus losing campaign against Democrat Richard Blumenthal in 2010 and the chances that she wouldn’t hesitate to drop that much and more in her latest effort. Now we know that’s the case. With a little more than a week to go, the Republican nominee is shamelessly engaged in a spending spree that has become the epitome of attempting to simply buy the US Senate seat.

Not only is McMahon dropping tens of millions on the race, she is doing so in strategies so strange it’s getting national attention. The first millions were sent in the traditional attack ads against Democratic US Rep. Chris Murphy. But in the last couple weeks, clearly realizing she can’t win in the usual way, she’s dropped millions trying to convince Democrats pull the lever for her.

It’s hard to imagine what voter who supports the president would also support McMahon. What the ads did accomplish was honking off a number of Republican voters who reportedly flooded state party headquarters outraged at what they saw as a betrayal.

Hartford officials actually dedicated to the people of the city would have none of it.

Anyone paying attention to this race can realize that McMahon is a rich person trying to buy the election—plain and simple.

  3. Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.

  4. Do not neglect that numerous other ALS groups contributed for the booth and have been there in the conference! Attending have been: Simon Teat, Christine Beavers, James Holton and Scott Classen. Also represented at the booth although not attending the conference were: Carolyn Larabell and Mark LeGros (x-ray tomography), Alastair MacDowell and Jason Knight (large pressure diffraction), and Martin Kunz (Laue Microdiffraction). Did I neglect any one?
