Linda McMahon won the Republican Party convention's endorsement in the 2012 U.S. Senate race in Connecticut yesterday.
McMahon was expected to win, but the 730 to 389 vote majority was impressive over riival Christopher Shays. Shays has vowed to stay in the race and challenge McMahon in the Republican primary. Brian Hall, an attorney, who got 62 votes, is hoping to get enough signatures to also get on the ballot.
McMahon was accompanied at the convention by Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, Stephanie, as well as son-in-law Paul "HHH" Levesque.
