HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — If Connecticut voters feel like they've seen a lot of Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon on TV lately, they're right.

A new analysis by the Wesleyan Media Project at Wesleyan University shows about 70 percent of the state's political ads for the hotly contested Senate race over the past month were paid for by McMahon. The former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment has spent more than $41 million so far on the race against Attorney General Richard Blumenthal to win the seat now held by U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd.

McMahon's campaign accounted for $5.2 million of the $7.4 million spent on Senate race TV ads from Sept. 1 to Oct. 7.

An Associated Press review of political advertising contracts shows McMahon is expected to dominate the airwaves between now and Election Day on Nov. 2.
