One former WWE Superstar comes out in support for Linda McMahon's Senate run

Who could it be?


Leaping Lanny Poffo has come out in support of a McMahon holding a Senate seat. Via the Daily Beast:

"Connecticut needs Linda McMahon," said Lanny "The Genius" Poffo, who wrestled in the WWE in the 1980s and ‘90s. "She is the opposite of Nancy Pelosi."

Poffo praised McMahon as a deficit hawk, as someone who would push Congress to balance the budget. "She’ll be something new in the Senate, someone who is very conscientious," Poffo said.
