The following is an excerpt from an article from GreenwichTime.com:
Republican Linda McMahon is sending her strongest signal yet that she is on the cusp of running for the open Senate seat of retiring incumbent Joe Lieberman in 2012, her second shot at the office in as many years.
Multiple people familiar with McMahon’s plans say the Greenwich resident and former WWE chief executive has already hired a campaign manager and is burning up the telephone lines trying to cultivate support for her candidacy within the GOP ranks.
Party insiders say that McMahon has tapped Corry Bliss, 30, a Republican strategist who has worked on several high-profile races in Virginia and Vermont, to run her campaign.
When Greenwich Time made an introductory call to Bliss Wednesday saying it had heard he would be working for McMahon, he didn’t deny it.
“Yes, I am,” Bliss said.
Bliss later couched his comments, however, saying he wasn’t on McMahon’s payroll because she hasn’t definitively declared for the race.
“I am a political consultant who has talked to her,” Bliss said. “She has not made up her mind.”
