In case you missed it, the Bowling Green Daily News Editorial Board endorsed Kentucky Tough Senator Mitch McConnell in his race against extreme Amy McGrath.
Since U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., took office he has shown time after time that he truly cares about Kentuckians and their needs.
McConnell has worked tirelessly through the years to put Kentucky’s interests first and foremost and has always voted for the conservative values that the majority of the citizens of our great state deeply value.
As majority leader of the Senate, he has used his powerful position to get millions upon millions of dollars for many communities across our state. As majority leader, he has also set the agenda in the Senate, which is vital not only for Kentucky but the country as a whole.
In his past term alone – since 2015 – McConnell has secured more than $17.5 billion for critical Kentucky projects. […]
He has also fought to defend rights that are very sacred to many Kentuckians such as the Second Amendment, supports a child’s right to life, pushes for lower taxes and has worked tirelessly to secure funding to control illegal immigration.
McConnell delivers to us in a very big way, which is why we can’t afford to lose him in the Senate. […]
McGrath also put her foot in her mouth on several occasions after she announced she was running against McConnell. She said she would’ve voted to confirm Kavanaugh to the high court, but hours later she retracted that and said she would’ve not voted to confirm him. Then, in a very red state like Kentucky, McGrath said she would’ve voted to impeach Trump. She also called Trump’s border wall plan “absolutely stupid.” Let us not forget that McGrath is a very strong pro-abortion candidate who even supports the barbaric procedure in the ninth month.
McGrath will also be remembered for comparing the 2016 election of Trump to the 9/11 terror attacks. […]
The choices in this election are quite clear.
You have a proven leader in McConnell who has shown time and time again that he gets Kentucky’s values and takes cares of its people. He has a proven record of representing the conservative values of this state and if reelected will continue to look out for the people of this state and deliver for them. In McGrath, you have someone who doesn’t really understand Kentucky’s values or its people. She represents by her own words the far-left wing of the national party and would be a rubber-stamp for its far-left agenda if elected to the Senate. Don’t be fooled by her saying she’s independent.
The candidate to support in this election is very clear, and that is McConnell because he will continue to stand up for Kentucky and be a voice for Kentuckians in the Senate.
For all the reasons we mentioned, we proudly endorse Sen. McConnell for reelection to the U.S. Senate on Nov. 3.
