1. It seems there are two great people running to displace MoscowMitch.

I'm supporting Amy McGrath.

Steve looks good too, but I got to know Amy back when she was running for the House in Kentucky. I thought she looked great and I felt horrible when she lost.

May the best person win!

2. you may want to consider this: Amy McGrath fancies herself a "Trump Democrat"

 

Amy McGrath fancies herself a “Trump Democrat” much to the delight of her conservative donors who have donated MILLIONS to McGrath.

Amy McGrath appeared on CNN and MSNBC exactly once and they both declared her “braindead” because she openly flip-flopped three times in one interview with Jake Tapper!

Amy McGrath: Trump Democrat

McGrath, on the other hand, is trying to run as a pro-Trump Democrat, the Louisville Courier Journal reports:
“If you think about why Kentuckians voted for Trump, they wanted to drain the swamp, and Trump said that he was going to do that,” McGrath said during the announcement of her candidacy on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “Trump promised to bring back jobs. He promised to lower drug prices for so many Kentuckians. And that is very important.” . . .
“And you know what? Who stops them along the way? Who stops the president from doing these things? Mitch McConnell,” she continued on MSNBC. “And I think that that’s very important, and that’s going to be my message — the things that Kentuckians voted for Trump for are not being done. He’s not able to get it done because of Senator McConnell.”
McGrath told the Courier Journal on Wednesday that she opposes Medicare for All, supports existing state limits on late-term abortion, and “probably” would have voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. “There was nothing in his record that I think would disqualify him in any way,” she said of Kavanaugh. (On Wednesday night, she flip-flopped on Kavanaugh: “I was asked earlier today about Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and I answered based upon his qualifications to be on the Supreme Court. But upon further reflection and further understanding of his record, I would have voted no.”)

This is an awkward attempt by McGrath — who had previously expressed opposition to any restrictions on abortion, likened her feelings about Trump’s election to 9/11, and called herself the most progressive person in Kentucky — to reinvent herself.

4. If You Signed Up at DU Just to Bash Mcgrath You Won't Find Many Converts to Your Cause

Most members here are politically astute and realize someone from the far left of the party has no chance of winning in conservative KY. Most of us also have little tolerance for those who attack other Dem candidates in an effort to attract support for their chosen candidate. If that's how you roll your visit here may be short lived.

6. First and Last Message Re: Amy McGrath

 

You can bet Steve Cox campaign has very little to say about Amy McGrath that hasn't already been said and done by Amy McGrath, thank you very much. Steve Cox moving forward toward Kentucky goals TRUMP THE NEAREST TRUMP DEMOCRAT.

Interesting how you pre-suppose political superiority absent political superiority. Cox campaign is paying very, very little attention to McGrath as she apparently self-immolated on national TV.
