Linda McMahon Senate Update, Austin Featured, JBL's Return?
-- JBL is teasing a potential new TV project on his Twitter. He wrote: "Turned down a ton of projects and all appearances over the last two years- got a TV show potential today that was interesting. We'll see."
-- We reported last night that the New York Times reports that Linda McMahon will officially announce her 2012 Senate bid in the next week. Linda spent $50 million of her own money on the failed 2010 campaign. Sources close to Linda's campaign report that this time, she plans to raise money from private donors instead of depending strictly on her own money. One of the reasons Linda is taking this approach this time is because last year, she received criticism that she was using her wealth to buy a Senate seat. Linda has been interviewing people for her campaign and reaching out for support to top Republicans over the past few weeks. Someone close to Linda said, "The response has been strong."
