Campaign Notebook: Financial Pasts of Murphy, McMahon Scrutinized

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.


The financial past of both Chris Murphy and Linda McMahon is being used by both camps to paint the other candidate as irresponsible.

Murphy’s campaign is brining up McMahon’s involvement in the 1976 bankruptcy of the WWE – then known as the World Wrestling Federation. According to the Associated Press, McMahon’s company owed $1 million to creditors.
