Washington – Republican Linda McMahon  poured another $15 million into her campaign in the last few months, bringing the total she’s invested in her latest bid for a U.S. Senate seat to nearly $30 million.

The latest filings with the Federal Election Commission show that from July 25 to Sept. 30, McMahon, who is running against Rep. Chris Murphy,D-5th District, raised $322,000 from individuals.

McMahon lent her campaign $14.8 million in that same time period. McMahon had lent her campaign $15 million in previous quarters as well.

She self-funded her first bid for the U.S. Senate, spending about $50 million of her own money in that effort. But the former executive of the World Wrestling Federation lost that race to Democrat Richard Blumenthal.
