Update: WWE's McMahon the clear winner

(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.

    The more Republican nutjobs becoming the Republican candidates will make their overwhelming defeat in November even better. No one is going to vote for these tea bagger lunatics who are uneducated, make moronic mistake-ridden statements, have no clue how our government works or what they would do if they got elected.

    Democrats are the Party of the People and have done ALL the work to pass more than 200 laws to benefit the PEOPLE and rein in the abusive corporations. President Obama has been extremely successful in bringing back our economy and getting job creation moving, No, it's not as fast as everyone wants, but we ARE moving forward and indicators are better with each passing month.

    So what do Republicans want to do if in power? Extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans which will add 4 Trillion dollars to the deficit. And we thought they were so concerned about the deficit? Not if it benefits their white wealthy buddies and corporations. Did you know they want to eliminate Social Security and Medicare? When they use code words like "ending entitlement programs" that means Social Security and Medicare. Be careful with your vote. Voting for Republicans will make your life far worse than you ever imagined.
