From the blog coverage by Daniela Altimari of the Hartford Courant (

Hearst’s Brian Lockhart asked Blumenthal if he intends to pursue greater regulation of professional wrestling, an issue he repeatedly raised in his campaign against Republican Linda McMahon.

“One issue that I clealry saw as important is the potential dangers of steroids — the real dangers of steroids — and the long-term health consequences of steroid use and that will be a focus of mine as a United States Senator,” he said.

“I won’t say beyond that what I would do about any of the other issues in the campaign that related to the way my opponent ran her business or treated the people who worked for her, but I think the campaign clearly involved a contrast in our respective records,” Blumenthal added.
