McConnell running for his life

"There are people from all over the country on the political left who would love to see the leader of the Senate Republicans defeated," Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told a crowd of about 40 people in front of the Green County courthouse.
True story!
"The guy running against me, if he was successful, would be a rookie," McConnell said. "Do you want to send Kentucky to the back bench with little or no influence?"
Hell yes. I hear that guy is a reformer and a maverick also.

Impending demise of $500m KY porkfest blamed on "the left"

A crowd of 40 people turned out for a speech by the Senate's leading Republican? Not a good sign for Mitch.
