    Linda McMahon is the former CEO of the world's largest professional wrestling promotion, World Wrestling Entertainment, and, as a result, has a considerable fortune to spend on a U.S. Senate campaign in Connecticut. The DSCC needs to back up Murphy in order to counter McMahon's money advantage.

    The U.S. Senate race in Maine is a three-way race that consists of Angus King, an independent candidate who is regarded by the NRSC as the de facto Democratic candidate, Cynthia Dill, the actual Democratic nominee, and Charlie Summers, the actual Republican nominee. The DSCC's strategy here should be to run a bunch of anti-Summers ads painting him as a far-right candidate in an attempt to hold Summers down to below 33 1/3%+1 of the vote, if all possible, since it's not known whether or not King will caucus with the Democrats, but it's more likely that King will do so than it would be for him to caucus with the Republicans, since the NRSC regards him as Summers's main opponent.
