Defeat Mitch. Defend Democracy (UPDATED)

That was Marine Corps veteran and fighter pilot Amy McGrath launching her campaign to challenge Mitch McConnell for his Kentucky Senate seat. This is pretty good, she tells a good simple story: Mitch doesn’t listen to Kentucky.

“Everything that’s wrong in Washington had to start someplace. It started with [McConnell]”

BOOM!

We need more stories instead of more Powerpoints.

Of course, amply be-chinned Mitch immediately fired back. They clearly had anticipated McGrath’s entry:

What’s that? Comrade Stupid has tweeted in support of Mitch?

OK, that proves it: McConnell is sweating bullets if he’s already bringing in the Russian Usurper this early in the campaign.

You might remember that McGrath was in the 2018 Pie Fight, and lost her campaign to Rep. Andy Barr, but only by 3 points in a district that Comrade Prznint won by 15 points in 2016. Because this is a state-wide election for a national position, she could have a real shot at this.

McConnell is uniquely despised nationally, and not surprisingly, he is despised in Kentucky with only a 36% approval rating, and a 50% disapproval, so he is buried under 14 points. Now, you might say, but yeah: Kentucky, and I might reply: they elect Democrats as governor.

UPDATE 1: Tiger Beat tells us…

… AND SHE’S ON HER WAY — NBC’S KASIE HUNT’S SCOOP: “McGrath raises a record $2.5 million on first day of Senate campaign”: “McGrath campaign manager Mark Nickolas said it’s the most ever raised in the first 24 hours of a Senate campaign. The [DSCC] says the next closest was former NASA astronaut Mark Kelly, who raised $1 million in his first day of his campaign in Arizona. …

“All of the $2.5 million came in online donations with an average donation of $36.15, her campaign manager said. The $2.5 million total doesn’t include any additional traditional fundraising money that may have been raised in the form of checks or promised campaign contributions.” NBC

  1. In Wisconsin, the gerrymandered districts all remained Republican; but Democrats took most of the state-wide contests! You go girl, kick the amply-bechinned asshole out!

    Say it loud and say it often; shitcanning Trump by winning the White House will mean almost nothing (at least in terms of enacting progressive legislation, or even basic damage repair legislation) unless the Dems flip the Senate.
    Also, too, SCOTUS!!!!!
    Even as all of us want to see Trump defeated and held to account, I could assemble a pretty good argument for the notion that the republic would be in less existential peril with a Dem Senate and Trump continuing as president than with a new Dem president and a continuing GOP-controlled Senate. Especially a McConnell-led one.

    Funny how everything in the Team Itch anti-Amy ad are points in her favor as far as I’m concerned.

      Agreed! Including the comparison of the 2016 election results to 9/11. Both events were foreign interference in U.S. autonomy?
