According to the Associated Press, McMahon stepped down from her role as WWE CEO and is one of four Republicans trying to unseat Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd. Her opponents in the Republican primary are U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons, state Sen. Sam Caligiuri and former U.S. Ambassador to Ireland Tom Foley.
Earlier this year, McMahon was appointed by Connecticut Gov. Jodi Rell to serve on the state's board of education. She has served the community in many other ways, as can be read in her WWE profile.
McMahon co-founded the WWE with her husband, and she has been CEO since 1997. As of Sept. 16, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon assumed the role of CEO.
