McMahon questioned during Senate confirmation hearing

Linda McMahon, the former CEO of Stamford-based WWE, was in Washington, D.C. Tuesday as a Senate panel held a hearing on her nomination to head the U.S. Small Business Administration.



McMahon talked about the ups and downs of her experience in building a professional wrestling empire with her husband, including filing for bankruptcy and losing their home.



She says she'll be the voice that small businesses need.



McMahon previously spent $100 million of her own money on two unsuccessful Senate campaigns in Connecticut before becoming a major contributor to a super PAC that supported President Donald Trump's campaign.
