If nobody else will, I would like to thank Linda McMahon for her generous support of the Connecticut broadcast industry.
She spent more than 77-million dollars of her own money to run for the U.S. Senate in 2010 and again in 2012. (Excuse me, I want to see that in all numbers. $77,000,000. Wow.)
Much of that money was spent on broadcast advertising. Which pays our salaries.
It seems to me that it would be wrong not to say, “Thank you.”
I never fully understood why Mrs. McMahon, or anyone, would spend that kind of fortune to run for public office, no matter how civic minded they may be.
I suppose because they can.
I forgot to mention she didn’t win either race. So far be it from me to discourage her from spending, oh, another 40-million or so to run for governor in two years.
She says she won’t. Too bad. But there’s plenty of time to reconsider.
This day after, critics are saying, “Think of all the good that money could have done.”
Oh, but it did.
