Linda McMahon is encouraging voters to split their ticket between her and President Barack Obama. McMahon is a Republican who has given more than $150,000 to Mitt Romney’s Restore Our Future PAC, but she’s running in a largely blue state where unaffiliated voters outnumber both Democrats and Republicans.

According to the New York Times, U.S. Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts is attempting to do something similar in the Bay State. Brown campaigned for McMahon in 2010 during her first run.

What do you think? Is it opportunistic? Or a smart political play?
