MADISON, Conn.  — A bomb threat forced the evacuation of a political fundraiser in Connecticut attended by Republican U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon.

McMahon was among more than 60 people at the home of Madison Republican Town Committee Chairman Tom Banisch on Sunday afternoon during a fundraiser for the local GOP.

Police say someone called them shortly after 4:30 p.m. to report a bomb at Banisch's home. State police searched the house for about an hour and determined the threat was bogus. No one was injured.

Authorities are trying to determine who made the threat.

McMahon is the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment. She faces Democrat Richard Blumenthal in the November election.
