Team Mitch Ad Debunks McGrathPro-Trump Democrat Myth

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — Team Mitch today launched a new statewide ad campaign introducing Kentuckians to another pillar of Amy McGrath’s radical, left-wing agenda — her refusal to accept the results of the 2016 election. “More” shows McGrath’s outrage about the results of the 2016 election as well as how she would actively work with Washington Democrats to remove President Trump from office.

“Amy McGrath cannot fool Kentuckians into thinking she is a pro-Trump Democrat because she is just as extreme as Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and their cast of liberal colleagues,” said McConnell Senate Committee campaign manager Kevin Golden. “By denying the results of the 2016 election and supporting President Trump’s impeachment, McGrath silences the voice of each Kentuckian who voted for President Trump. Leader McConnell is President Trump’s strongest ally in the Senate and works with the President to advance Kentucky’s priorities. McGrath wants to silence Kentuckians, but as the only one of four Congressional leaders not from New York or California, Leader McConnell is a megaphone for the Bluegrass.”

  • McGrath: “The election of 2016 and Donald Trump whether you like him or not, he changed a lot of us. Okay? It changed me. I — for somebody who has served our country in the military, my response to that was not ‘Oh hell no.’ You know, it was ‘OH HELL NO.’ I am not — I am not accepting of this. I’m not accepting — not in America. And so what I would tell people in sort of my call to action I guess is, if you want to run for something, do it.”

Shortly after the Senate acquitted President Trump in February 2020, McGrath said she would have voted for removal and cited “overwhelming evidence provided by the House…” (Lexington Herald-Leader, 2/5/2020)

  • “Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Amy McGrath said Wednesday that she would have voted to impeach and convict President Donald Trump on both counts had she been in the Senate, taking a firm stance on impeachment after months of cautiously endorsing the impeachment inquiry.”
  • McGrath: “It was clear from the overwhelming evidence provided by the House, and the refusal of the White House to provide the witnesses and documents requested, that the president withheld vital national security assistance to Ukraine in order to pressure them to investigate a political opponent […] For this reason alone, I would have voted to impeach and convict on both counts.”
