Amy McGrath files to challenge Mitch McConnell in Senate Race.

Source: PBS News Hour:



Calling her party's victory in the Kentucky governor's race a jolt of momentum for her own bid to unseat a Republican incumbent, Democrat Amy McGrath on Friday officially filed to challenge Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in what looms as a bruising, big-spending campaign next year.

McGrath, a retired Marine combat pilot, touted many of the same issues -- health care and good-paying jobs -- that Andy Beshear highlighted in ousting Republican incumbent Matt Bevin in last month's election for governor. Beshear ran a "great campaign" that focused on issues that hit home for Kentuckians, McGrath said in a phone interview with the Associated Press.

"It absolutely gives us momentum because it shows that against an unpopular Republican incumbent, a Democrat can win," McGrath said. "And we win by talking about those bread-and-butter issues that Kentuckians really care about.

This happened today 12/27.. I have posted an address to give money. See Post number 2... And yes McGrath will need a lot of money to have a chance. The ads must show that McConnell is Trumps lap child, and they will. If there is enough money, McConnell may have to defend himself for the first time in front of his home state. He is Trump's stooge and lap dog. It will be ugly, but Trump's lap dog is the truth.

Defeating McConnell and Trump would be a great win for all of us.

1. I've been supporting Amy McGrath since her first run.

And I am supporting her now, with monthly donations and with an occasional smaller amount.

I really hope she will beat MoscowMitch.

It's time, past time, for Kentucky to have honest representation in the Senate.

Amy,

It's not only a link where folks can donate, but it also provides her history, which is fascinating.

Thank you!

5. I don't know..but she will. This publicity will help. It is indeed a slow news day.

And on a "slow news day" this is big news.

6. I believe Amy will take out McConnell

Especially if Dems can just get out the vote. McConnell has a 30% approval rating here. The only reason he keeps getting re-elected is that far too many Kentuckians don't vote.

I already contribute, and I will campaign for her.

7. "Defeating McConnell and Trump would be a great win for all of us."

Absolutely.

Voters of KY can be heroes. They just need to step up to the plate and get the job done. From out of state, I have donated to McGrath, and will again.

9. It would be interesting to trace where the $250 million for

"election security" approved by mcturdle in Sept. ended up.

10. maybe it's time for those of us who do not

Live in KY to hold fund-raising parties with our Dem friends and donate the proceeds to the link or address you provided. Can hardly wait to celebrate his defeat.

11. Be prepared for an avalanche of filth and lies. Courtesy of

the US government executive branch,
the Chinese gov't (Chao),
the Russkis - funders of the (r)epuglicons and the trumpf world,
and oligarchs around the world who don't want to see true democracy work.

Good luck, Amy!

I will support you from afar.

13. And unlike Bitch McConnell, Amy Mac actually SERVED in the military.

I REALLY wish someone would force McConnell to reveal his service record, EXACTLY what's in it, and WHY he was discharged so promptly. This story has yet to be given the media treatment. And make no mistake, there IS a story here.

If his campaign is going to slag her, then his military record is fair game. Open that file up. NOW.

16. "Bitch," really?

You really had to use a gendered slur just because it's cute and funny?

17. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GENDER

from Websters New World: anything especially unpleasant or difficult or to behave spitefully or angrily toward.

You can leave now.

15. She's got a good background, but not sure

putting up a candidate who ran for and lost an election for the House just a year ago is the best idea. IMHO, second acts don't often succeed. But, I doubt Dems have a deep bench in KY, though.
