Linda McMahon Wins GOP US Senate Connecticut Primary

Linda McMahon defeated former Rep. Chris Shays in the Republican primary in Connecticut Tuesday night. McMahon, who has already spent at least $12 million for her campaign, will now face Democratic Rep. Christopher Murphy this November for Sen. Joseph Lieberman’s seat, who is retiring.

Murphy has been leading McMahon in recent hypothetical polls, including topping McMahon by 8 points (50%-42% with 8% undecided) in a PPP poll late last month.
