(WTNH) - Former Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon is launching a post-election wave of TV and radio ads offering her gratitude to those who supported her Senate run.
She's not going back to pro-wrestling, that's clear. And if you read between the lines it sure sounds like Connecticut politics will continue to involve Linda McMahon.
Her new TV ad is not a political commercial, but it's on all the local channels and it's being paid for by Linda McMahon.
"I didn't win the election but to everyone whose hand I shook, who touched my heart, and who challenged my thinking throughout the campaign, I wanted to say; thank you," McMahon said in the ad.
Despite outspending Dick Blumenthal seven to one, the Democrat won the election by over 100,000 votes.
Chief Political Correspondent Mark Davis met with her Tuesday at her Stamford office and asked her if she thinks the nearly $50 million she spent on the race was a good investment.
"Well, I do," McMahon said. "If I hadn't been willing to make the investment I wouldn't have gotten into the race. I think we really energized the party and created a lot of excitement in the state."
Joe Lieberman's term is up in November of 2012 – in less than two years -- and there's been a great deal of speculation that McMahon has her sights set on that seat.
"I'm not taking any options off the table. I've not decided to run. I'm taking time to evaluate. Moving into 2012 it's a possibility. I'm not saying yes yet."
But McMahon also says that while the campaign trail was tiring it was also rewarding, and that many people she met along the way are urging her to run.
"I found this to be quite a challenge, quite a rewarding experience to have gained the support that I did across the state and to have so many people come out for me," McMahon continued. "And I can tell you they're clearly saying to me: 'Well, hopefully you're not going to let this be the end of your political career. We hope you're going to run again.' And, you know, that is part of the consideration going into the next round."
For the immediate future, she's winding down the senate campaign operation, and spending more time as a grandmother for a while.
