Shays: Not Totally Over It

Those comments he made during the campaign include saying "I have never run against an opponent that I have respected less" than the former World Wrestling Entertainment CEO. He did, however, say he congratulated McMahon on the win and pledged his vote and support to her, the Mirror reported. More:

Though the former congressman had attacked McMahon's lack of political experience during the campaign, calling her unqualified, he said that wouldn't be an obstacle toward building party unity for the general election. Shays did say, however, that he does not respect how McMahon had conducted the race. "I think avoiding the press and not meeting with editorial boards and not being willing to debate is something I didn't respect, but her positions and my positions are not far apart," he said. "And that's what I'll focus on."
