UConn McMahon rally ends due to ‘skirmish’


When I first heard that U.S. Sen. candidate Linda McMahon was coming to campus, I knew it would be news. But I didn’t imagine that it would be newsworthy for this reason:

STORRS, Conn. (AP) — A rally at the University of Connecticut for Senate candidate Linda McMahon ended abruptly when students got involved in a skirmish.

The Republican candidate was visiting the campus in Storrs on Monday.

Several students from a domestic violence awareness group were in attendance. A 24-year-old student says a McMahon supporter tore down the sign he was holding that accused McMahon of profiting from violence against women – a reference to McMahon’s role as a World Wrestling Entertainment executive.
