Republican candidate for Senate Linda McMahon is on “Face the State” this weekend talking about a host of issues. When she was on last time we were criticized by some for spending too much time on wrestling, and no doubt those critics will spew some venom my way again this weekend.
Quite often people will tell me that they like Linda McMahon and say they would like to see fresh face in the Senate. This mother and grandmother has the political gift of being able to connect with people in person, there is no doubt about it. She is very easy to talk to and seems genuinely interested in people’s lives. However, most of these people will also tell me they are concerned about the whole wrestling thing.
We talked about this on Face the State and McMahon totally gets voters apprehension about her career. She knows not everyone can relate to the WWE, which might explain why she is actually running clips from her past in her new commercials.
We also talked about Dick Blumenthal and I asked her to describe what kind of person she thinks he is. We talked about her campaign’s role in the NY Times story about Blumenthal’s military service. McMahon also told me about a recent conversation she had with Rob Simmons. As I reported on this blog a few days ago, we also talked about the lawsuit filed against McMahon and the WWE by the widow of wrestler Owen Hart.
It is all this Sunday on Face the State.
