Former World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Linda McMahon, the newly nominated Republican Senate candidate in Connecticut, says she's ready to spend what it takes to beat Democrat Richard Blumenthal.
Appearing on a network news program, McMahon brushed off accusations she made millions by promoting an industry allegedly rife with violence and steroid abuse.
Asked about this on ABC's "Good Morning America," McMahon said the entertainment model "will continue to evolve." She has said she plans to spend up to $50 million of her own money in the fall, telling the network Wednesday: "It's money I've earned. It's money I'm willing to invest."
McMahon warned Democrats that a negative campaign against her could backfire.
