Linda McMahon, the former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) CEO and Senate candidate from Connecticut, says she opposes the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which outlaws federal agencies from recognizing the legal marriages of gay and lesbian couples.
McMahon is battling her Democratic rival, Rep. Chris Murphy, for the seat being vacated by retiring Senator Joseph Lieberman, a Democrat turned independent.
In their first debate held on Sunday, McMahon was asked which state, North Carolina or Connecticut, got it right on gay nuptials. North Carolina, McMahon’s home state, in May approved a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a heterosexual union, while the Connecticut Supreme Court legalized such unions in 2008.
