(CNN) –Former World Wrestling Entertainment executive Linda McMahon won Connecticut's GOP Senate primary on Tuesday, setting up a general election face off against the state's attorney general.
With 58 percent of the vote in, McMahon had a 19-point lead over former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons. McMahon, along with her husband Vince, operated World Wrestling Entertainment from its startup in 1980 until last year, when she announced her candidacy.
Connecticut was one of four states holding key Senate or gubernatorial primaries Tuesday, including Georgia and Colorado, where endorsements brought pre-voting drama.
