WWE CEO to Run for U.S. Senate

This blog post goes out to one seriously dedicated (borderline crazy fanatic) WWE fan in particular... you know who you are. 

Christopher Dodd had better get ready for a serious smackdown.

World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. today announced Ms. Linda McMahon will resign from her role as WWE's CEO in order to conduct an effective campaign for one of Connecticut's U.S. Senate seats.  "I never do anything half-heartedly," she said in an interview with the Associated Press earlier today.  "I am 100 percent serious about this race."
McMahon, 60, launched her candidacy saying the five-term incumbent Dodd has "lost his way and our trust." Dodd plans to run for a sixth term next year and is seen as one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats. ...

McMahon faces three other Republicans -- former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons, state Sen. Sam Caligiuri and former U.S. Ambassador to Ireland Tom Foley. She is expected to tap her personal wealth to help pay for the race.
