Rob Simmons, who halted his campaign for the Republican Senate nomination after losing the party endorsement to former WWE CEO Linda McMahon, will begin airing TV ads urging voters to "look at the issues" before voting in the Aug. 10 primary.But his numbers are still as dismal as McMahon's are up when stacked up against any of the Democratic party candidates. You would think, for that reason alone, that Linda McMahon would be happy to have a reason to argue issues with someone during the primary season? But no... She's as pissed as a wrestler after too many steroid shots.
In a press release on Wednesday, Simmons said he would spend some of his remaining campaign funds on the TV spots.
"For the past two months, I have been travelling the state supporting my fellow Republican candidates," Simmons said. "Everywhere I go people ask me if I am still running for the U.S. Senate. My response has been 'I'm still on the ballot.'"
The Breitbart version of this story featured a badly edited video of disgruntled former WWE wrestlers calling McMahon a racist steroid pusher and photos of Simmons in a headlock while teabagging her.
I don't have that video... But I do have this one:
