Linda McMahon’s Opponent Runs Ad During RAW


— A story on CT News Junkie reports that WWE’s US Senate general election opponent Chris Murphy ran a campaign advertisement during a broadcast of RAW on Monday night. Murphy’s campaign bought the time on USA and the network decides when and during what programming to run the ad. Murphy said: “I’m going to talk to people who watch wrestling. I think they deserve to know the real story behind the company that runs that business.”

— WWE issued the following statement yesterday in response: “For the second week in a row, Mr. Murphy’s campaign continues to run advertising in our programming with his new ad airing yesterday at 10:30 p.m. on USA during Monday Night Raw. While the past political rhetoric has been unjust, it pleases us to know that Mr. Murphy recognizes that WWE’s TV programming is a highly effective way to reach families and voters in Connecticut.”
