McConnell equates his ancestors' slave ownership to Obama's

McConnell equates his ancestors' slave ownership to Obama's”

The Hill reported Tuesday that Democrats are looking to "demonize" McConnell in their 2020 campaigns, pointing to his low approval ratings and reputation as a "roadblock" in the Senate.

In a video that was posted on YouTube on Tuesday morning, the former Lieutenant Colonel ended the speculation by officially throwing her hat into the ring.

In her announcement video, McGrath, a born and raised Kentuckian, tells the story of when she wrote to her senator at 13 years old, during a time when women weren't allowed to have combat roles in the military, to tell him she wanted to be a fighter pilot, and that "women should be able to do that".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has a challenger in his upcoming 2020 re-election campaign. The title refers to a letter she wrote to McConnell in her youth, which he ignored, as she previously noted in "Told Me".

"I'm Amy McGrath, and I've often wondered, how many other people did Mitch McConnell never take the time to write back (to) or even think about?"

In that race, McGrath, a Naval Academy graduate, foreswore negative attack ads against Barr while he and several outside groups supporting him spent millions of dollars labeling her as "too liberal" for Kentucky. It does, however, provide her biography, pointing to her accomplishment of becoming "the first woman in the Marine Corps to fly a combat mission in an F/A-18 fighter jet". She was inducted into the Aviation Museum of Kentucky's Hall of Fame, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Although McGrath garnered celebrity during the 2018 congressional elections after a biographical video celebrating her accomplishments went viral, she ultimately lost her House race against Rep. Andy Barr by a narrow margin of 3 points. "I'm running for Senate because it shouldn't be like this".

It seems clear now why he's so against the ADOS (American Descendants of Slavery) movement which seeks to reclaim/restore the critical national character of the African American identity and experience, namely through reparations. This is a different because, you know, Kentucky voted overwhelmingly for Donald Trump and you can say Kentucky is a very red state but it's a very pro Trump state, ' she said.

In her video, she has made a virtue out of her relative political inexperience against McConnell who has served in the Senate since 1985. She then argued that McConnell had "bit by bit, year by year, turned Washington into something we all despise".
