McMahon Reflects on Losing Two Senate Bids

Linda McMahon (R), who spent nearly $100 million of her own money on two failed U.S. Senate bids from Connecticut, tells Businessweek when she learned she had lost.

Said McMahon: "I was sitting by myself, actually. I had just taken a moment to go upstairs and get my thoughts together on what I was still hoping would be a victory speech. I was just sitting there, going over my speech clearly you have a concession speech as well, but you're hoping that's not the one you use. I wasn't paying that much attention to the TV. This was about 40 minutes after the polls closed. Then I looked up and saw a checkmark next to Chris Murphy's name on ABC. I barely caught it out of the corner of my eye. I just thought, 'Wow.' I was stunned for a moment. I sat there for a few minutes on my own, reflecting on what the race had been."
