Connecticut Senate Race Tightens

Linda McMahon doing better than her last attempt two years ago

|

Linda McMahon lost by 12 percentage points when she ran for the Senate two years ago on her credentials as co-founder of World Wrestling Entertainment Inc., the wrestling-show empire.

This year, she has retooled her image and rekindled hopes among Republicans that they can pick up a Senate seat in Democratic-leaning Connecticut.

Focusing on the economy and on outreach to women, Ms. McMahon has turned her race against Rep. Christopher Murphy into a potential upset.
