The Associated Press reported on Friday that Linda McMahon has spent $42.6 million on her campaign for United States Senate. Just this Tuesday McMahon loaned her campaign another $3.3 million to spend on television and advertising.
In 2010, McMahon spent $50 million of her own money while running for United States Senate only to lose to Democrat Richard Blumental. At the time, McMahon justified the spending by saying she was virtually unknown and had to spend to get her name out there. She didn’t feel she would have to spend near as much on a second campaign.
This article comes on the heels of me writing here in Ask WNW that I felt the amount of money Linda McMahon has spent trying to get elected was alarming. The total now stands at $92.6 million.
