Linda McMahon is returning to her roots… her campaign announced today that she would be putting the Republican nominating race for US Senate against Christopher Shays on hold this weekend to attend Wrestlemania XXVIII from Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida. This will also lead to media criticism as McMahon has tried to keep her WWE past at arm’s reach, highlighting her success as a female executive but having no part of the racier Attitude Era story lines.
McMahon left WWE in 2009 to pursue a run for United States Senate in 2010. She won the Republican nomination but was defeated by Democrat Richard Blumenthal in the general election. McMahon is running this year for the nomination to fill the seat out of the state of Connecticut being vacated by the retiring Joseph Lieberman.
