Marine Amy McGrath files to run against MoscowMitch

It’s now official:

FRANKFORT, Ky. — 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.

I’m ready to cut a check to her campaign. Join us, won’t you?

3. Thanks for the link ...

I watched her video ... another clear strong voice! People like her are the future of the Dem party and it's so heartening to see so many of them entering politics.

6. Amy can beat 30% approval Mitch

If the Dem party gets behind her. He does have tons of money (gawd knows where it comes from). She's already getting nasty ads run against her, such as saying she would allow a woman to have an abortion on the way to the hospital to give birth.

We all know Moscow Mitch has no morals.

7. I'm in! Sending $$ and best wishes!

I'm too far away to actively help her, but can wish her all the best of luck in throwing this scumbag out on his chinless turtle face!

Defeating Moscow Mitch is the 2nd most important race. I've given to Amy twice and am going to make another donation.

10. I'll support her

I just find it hard to believe McConnell will mount a strong campaign from his jail cell in 2020.

17. I have made a number of contributions.

There is nothing I want more - Except for Trump's removal - than having Mitch defeated. Especially by a woman. He is trying to dismantle this democracy and is not even hiding his treachery. The man is evil and I hope his last days are a nightmare.

19. She's going to need a ton of money, and I don't care if she raises in a barn or "wine cave" as long

as she's able to compete.
