Ladies Who Launch has announced it will host Linda McMahon, candidate for United States Senate, at a gathering in New Canaan Dec. 12.

"This is a really casual night for ladies. A night that will be a very interesting time to get to know a woman that has been a stay-at-home mom, a working mom and now a mom with her sights set on the U.S. Senate," Kathy McShane, managing director of Ladies Who Launch, Southwestern CT, said. "This is not a fundraiser. It will be an evening of good conversation among women who want to be informed. I am delighted to host the event so that my ladies can get to know her and her platform. I'm always open to a night of intellectual conversation," McShane said.
