Women may have doomed her first campaign for U.S. Senate, but Linda McMahon has flipped the script and eliminated the gender gap according to recent polls and the women gathered at a campaign rally in Norwalk Saturday.
In her second run for the U.S. Senate McMahon, the former CEO of the WWE, has made a concerted effort to reach out to female voters.
Rep. Lile Gibbons, a Republican from Greenwich, said McMahon has worked very hard over the past two years to get people to know her.
“Women are interested in supporting other women,” Gibbons said.
They also like strong women, according to Gibbons.
McMahon herself said that women were just getting to know her two years ago during her first run for Senate.
“They didn’t get to know me well enough during the first campaign and I think they are getting to know me,” McMahon said.
