    politics.

    She's said she'll spend up to $50 mil of her own money on this race - given that this isn't all that big of a state maybe she should just go ahead and cut each registered voter a check with a "please vote for me, kisses, Linda" sticky note attached.

      for jumping in here to point out yet again that Blumenthal should be asking voters to take a moment to question the motives of a woman who is willing to spend $50 million of her own money to buy a job that pays much, much less. He should be digging into her past to find any other time she's spent so much to help out anyone but herself.

      When people that rich spend that much, they are always looking for a return on investment. What does McMahon expect to get for her money, and how will it e good for anybody but her and her very rich friends?

        ...she's never been involved in politics, she has zero record of public service and she's willing to spend $50 mil of her own money to buy a senate seat.

        Why?

        Totally valid question.
