Amy McGrath announces campaign against Mitch McConnell

Amy McGrath, a retired U.S. Marine Corps officer who was the first female pilot to fly a combat mission in the history of the Marines, is now running as a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate seat in Kentucky that is currently held by Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. McGrath’s campaign released this powerful introductory video:

The choice in Kentucky’s upcoming U.S. Senate election couldn’t be any more clearer. Mitch McConnell is running to continue his hyperpartisan agenda of putting the Republican Party’s political interests over the interests of the people of Kentucky. Amy McGrath is running to make democracy work for the people of Kentucky, not partisan interests. I endorse Amy McGrath’s candidacy for U.S. Senate in Kentucky, and I encourage Kentuckians to support McGrath’s candidacy.
