McMahon Wins Tea Party Poll In Connecticut

February 14, 2011

The Connecticut Tea Party Patriots held a 2012 Senate straw poll Saturday, and among the top finishers were a few familiar names from the 2010 cycle.

Linda McMahon, the 2010 Republican Senate nominee, won the straw poll while Republican Peter Schiff, who finished third in the Senate Republican primary, placed second

Third place was a tie between former Rep. Rob Simmons (R) (who finished second to McMahon in the Senate race) and former Ambassador to Ireland Tom Foley (R), who lost a nail-biter of a gubernatorial race to Gov. Dan Malloy (D).

You have to go all the way to number four to find a 2010 candidate who won a seat: state Sen. Scott Franz (R). Finishing after Franz was Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton (R), who was a gubernatorial candidate in 2010 before running for Lieutenant Governor.
