SOUTHINGTON, Conn. — Former professional wrestling executive Linda McMahon says she's making a special effort to reach out to women voters as she makes a second bid for a Connecticut U.S. Senate seat.

The Republican kicked off a statewide tour of women-owned businesses this week. She told The Associated Press she didn't reach out to many female business owners during her 2010 race.

This time, as she seeks the seat held by the retiring Sen. Joe Lieberman, McMahon said she plans to make more visits and meet with women's organizations.

McMahon struggled to win over many female voters in 2010. Her opponent, now-Sen. Richard Blumenthal, received three of every five votes from women, despite McMahon's last-minute advertising targeting women voters. She spent about $50 million of her own money on her campaign.
