McMahon Outlines Jobs, Tax Plan

NEWINGTON, Conn. (AP) – Republican Senate hopeful Linda McMahon is proposing tax cuts for the middle class and businesses among other economic proposals she says will jump-start the economy.

She also proposed a 1 percent cut in federal spending, with some exceptions.

The former wrestling executive announced her package at a woodworking company in Newington on Wednesday. It marked her first news conference since she announced her second bid for the U.S. Senate.

McMahon ran for Senate in 2010, but lost to now-Sen. Richard Blumenthal after spending $50 million of her own money on the campaign.

As in 2010, McMahon pitched herself on Wednesday as a job creator. She said the business perspective is missing from the economic debate in Washington.
