WASHINGTON (AP) – Former wrestling entertainment executive Linda McMahon has been sworn in to lead the Small Business Administration.

Vice President Mike Pence administered the oath to McMahon Tuesday after the Senate voted 81-19 to confirm her. The vote was a rare display of bipartisanship compared to the conflict over many of President Donald Trump's other nominees.

McMahon helped start and grow World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. She served as the chief executive officer at WWE before stepping down in 2009 to run for the Senate. She lost races in 2010 and 2012, spending nearly $100 million of her own money on the campaigns.

The SBA is best known for making small business loans and providing disaster aid to companies and entrepreneurs.
