One of Kentucky’s largest newspapers, the Lexington Herald-Leader, confirmed candidate Amy McGrath to Senator Mitch McConnell.

The paper’s editorial board wrote in an op-ed that the choice is Amy McGrath, a challenger to Democrats who challenge longtime running and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “During his 36-year tenure in office, McConnell has made it very clear that his only passion is power, his own and the Republican Party’s business. The only reason we will support his opponent.”

The editorial board praised McGrath, saying it “understands that Kentucky is suffering from a failure to address the economic, educational and health care needs that have put the state at the bottom of most rankings during McConnell’s tenure.”

McGrath is a former Marine fighter pilot who is challenging -36-year-old McConnell for the Senate. He ran the Kentucky Rep in the Democratic primary for Senate membership. Charles defeated Booker. Although McGraw topped McConnell in the money race in this campaign, each candidate amassed more than 46 46 million and 36 36 million, respectively, as business insider Grace Panetta previously reported that McGraw would not defeat one of the most high-profile Republicans. .

As a Senate majority leader, McConnell has been a key player for the Republican Party and a staunch defender of the presidency. However, as the election approached, one economist said McConnell was “expecting Trump’s defeat” and would not be likely to run to support the stimulus bill because he did not want to jeopardize his personal claim as Senate leader.

“McConnell said intentionally to take care of Kentucky and the country, but, over and over again, he chose the GOP instead,” the Herald-Leader editorial said. “On numerous occasions, while he could have prevented the worst atrocities of the Trump administration, he has chosen to do nothing or increase the presidency as evidenced by his maneuvers to ensure that Trump’s impeachment trial ends quickly in acquittal.”
