Stan Simpson: Trump taps Connecticut’s Linda McMahon for cabinet position

HARTFORD -- Time for a little political chatter on The Stan Simpson Show.

Courant Capital Bureau Chief Chris Keating updates us on the very latest including a Connecticut tie to Donald Trump's future cabinet.

President-elect Donald Trump has nominated Linda McMahon to head the Small Business Administration in his Cabinet.

McMahon previously served as CEO of the World Wrestling Entertainment, which is based in Stamford, Connecticut.

In a statement from his transition team, Trump said he tapped McMahon because she "has a tremendous background and is widely recognized as one of the country's top female executives advising businesses around the globe. She helped grow WWE from a modest 13-person operation to a publicly traded global enterprise with more than 800 employees in offices worldwide."
