If the name “Amy McGrath” doesn’t ring a bell it’s because she was one of the few Dems running last fall who *lost* a toss-up House race against her Republican opponent. She fell a few points short against Rep. Andy Barr in KY-6 despite her credentials as the first woman to fly in combat for the Marines and a viral campaign ad that made her a figure of national interest to Democrats. She raised big big big money as a result, making her a serious threat to knock off Barr in a rematch if the political climate is trending blue next fall.
Instead she’s going to challenge the most influential man in the Senate, who has the number of every major Republican donor in the country in his phone’s contacts and has had only one close-ish race in the last 25 years. That came in the Democratic Hopenchange wave of 2008; even with Obama fever at its peak, Dems couldn’t knock off Cocaine Mitch in Kentucky. Now here’s McGrath ready to challenge him in a presidential election year, with Trump at the top of the ballot in a state he won by just a hair under 30 points.
In the meantime, McGrath will get the full Beto/Wendy Davis/Stacey Abrams treatment by the DNC-MSM, beginning with: NYT journo compares Amy McGrath to Luke Skywalker.
Wait a second — Mitch McConnell is Amy’s father? And she’s become a full-on communist-inspired slave-owning religious terrorist, killing hundreds of thousands to protest dad’s firm but fair rule? Who’s side is the Times on here?
