Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D. MT) in support of Amy McGrath’s (D. KY) U.S. Senate campaign:
Did you see the latest poll?
Democratic challenger, Amy McGrath is TIED with Republican Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell.
You know what this means? Kentucky is winnable — and we can send Mitch McConnell packing in 2020.
McConnell has done nothing but turn the Senate into a legislative graveyard. He’s put the interests of lobbyists and dark-money groups ahead of the American people. He’s tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act, passed a tax scam that benefitted the ultra-wealthy, and he’s packed our courts with extremist right-wing judges.
Plenty of bills I’ve worked on have gathered enough support from both sides of the aisle to pass — only for McConnell to refuse to call a vote.
He has to go.
Amy served our country in Iraq and Afghanistan and was the first woman to fly in a combat mission for the Marine Corps. So I can tell you — she won’t back down from a tough fight with Mitch McConnell.
Time to take back the Senate.
