    McMahon Continues to Vastly Outspend Peter Schiff in Connecticut GOP Primary

    Linda McMahon, the former chief executive of World Wrestling Entertainment who said that she's willing to spend $50 million of her own money to win Connecticut's U.S. Senate race, continues to vastly outspend investment advisor Peter Schiff, her libertarian-leaning challenger in the state's August 10 primary.

    According to her latest FEC filing, covering the period from April 1 through June 30, McMahon put another $5.5 million into her campaign, bringing her total personal investment to $21.5 million — or more than seven times the amount Schiff has raised during the entire campaign.

    Schiff, who successfully petitioned his way onto the primary ballot, raised close to $450,000 during the same reporting period, bringing his overall total to nearly $2.9 million.

    Despite being vastly outspent, Peter Schiff is still hoping for a come-from-behind victory in the August 10 primary.

    Hoping to pull off a major upset against the well-heeled ex-wrestling promoter, the financial guru and former economic advisor to Ron Paul’s 2008 presidential campaign ended June with approximately $483,000 cash on hand compared to more than $3.2 million for McMahon.

    Former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons, who suspended his campaign in late May after failing to win his party's endorsement, raised more than $110,000 during the last three months.

    A Quinnipiac Poll of likely Republican voters released on Friday showed McMahon with a commanding 39-point lead over Schiff with a quarter of those surveyed stating a preference for Simmons, whose name will remain on the primary ballot and has recently flirted with the idea of jumping back into the race.

    I hate to say it, but as long as Rob Simmons supporters are tossing away votes on a suspended campaign McMahon has got this one in the bag. I will still be calling my heart out. Simmons is a tool for playing this half in / half out game.

    I live on Long Island. I've been constantly hearing Linda Mcmahon commercials on the radio for months. Linda also advertises all over the New York tv stations. I have yet to hear or see a Peter Schiff commercial. Why isn't Peter advertising? Making matters worse is that Mcmahon advertises herself as anti establishment. She is just another Scott Brown.

    Schiff is going to do a media blitz soon. He can't go toe to toe with McMahon.

    Look at his funds, and then look at our DMA. The answer is in the math.
