McMahon to visit D.C. to talk 2012 with Senate GOP?

Republican Linda McMahon is reportedly planning a trip to Washington to meet with GOP strategists in charge of heading up their party’s 2012 Senate election efforts, yet another sign that the former WWE executive is seriously considering a second Senate campaign.

Even on election night, as she conceded to Democrat Richard Blumenthal, McMahon openly invited speculation that she would make another bid.

Sen. Joseph Lieberman, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, is up for re-election in 2012, and he hasn’t said yet whether or how he might run. Politico reports this morning that Lieberman is keeping all his options open, as he laps up some fresh attention from lawmakers in both parties.
