US Senate—Connecticut

In Connecticut, Republican Linda McMahon (pictured left), co-founder and former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, defeated Rep. Rob Simmons, a former congressman who suspended his campaign in May only to jump back into the race a month later. McMahon faces Democrat Richard Blumenthal (right), the state's attorney general, who stepped into the race when long-time incumbent Chris Dodd decided to retire.
