Linda McMahon doesn’t rule out 2012 run against Lieberman

Republican Linda McMahon, who spent some $50 million of her own money in a losing bid for the Senate this fall against state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal (D), is already eyeing 2012.

During a taping of “Face the State with Dennis House” on Thursday, McMahon wouldn’t rule out a run saying, “I’m not taking anything off the table.” Her full interview is set to air in Connecticut Sunday.

McMahon will also be up with a statewide TV spot next week thanking those who supported her in 2010.

A large part of McMahon’s appeal to some GOP insiders in the state in 2010 was her ability to self-fund and it helped her defeat former Rep. Rob Simmons (R-Conn.) at the state party convention earlier this year.

But after spending $50 million in a losing effort during an otherwise favorable political environment for Republicans, McMahon would have a lot of convincing to do ahead of 2012 if she decides to make another run.

As for Lieberman, many on the left are salivating at the chance to take him out in two years with some eyeing Rep. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) as a challenger.

Speculation has also swirled around Ted Kennedy Jr., who lives in Branford. Earlier this year Kennedy Jr. demanded that McMahon pull a campaign ad that included a clip of his uncle — President John F. Kennedy — talking about tax cuts.
