WWE: Why Linda McMahon Should Not Run For Political Office
WWE Does Not Need Linda McMahon Running For Political Office Again
In 2010, former WWE CEO Linda McMahon made a run for the United States Senate. There were times during the campaign where it looked like she could win. Ultimately, she fell well short of election and there were some WWE business practices that got brought to light.
Since that loss, McMahon has been debating whether or not to make another run for the soon-to-be-vacated Connecticut Senate seat in 2012. According to a report, she is close to make her decision.
From The Washington Post:
...Former wrestling executive Linda McMahon, who lost as the GOP nominee in an open seat Senate races in 2010, is making moves to run again; Healy said he expects to have an answer “within a month” from McMahon.
I respect all the charity work that Linda McMahon has done. She is a big proponent on improving education not only in the state of Connecticut, but all across the country. With that said, I think that another Senate run would be an awful idea for her and WWE.
The McMahon family had to spend $50 million of their own money in 2010 just to get her into the race and buy advertising time on radio, television and newspapers. They really don't want to go through that kind of money again knowing that there is little chance that she will win.
Another reason that she shouldn't run is because of the sketchy history of her husband, Vince McMahon, and WWE. The company just had to sign a check for over $7,000 in underpaid unemployment.
The company doesn't need these kinds of headaches again, nor do they want them, and Linda never came off as a viable candidate last time. What makes her think that she would be better suited for the job this time?
