If you look at numerous polls you'll see that McConnell's approval rating falls between 19-31% (Real Clear Politics) I'm sure Rasmussen has him higher. Even Fox news has his approval rating at just 25%. I wonder why his long time Aid decided to retire before the next election? It seems to be a red bug that only effects Republican's.

Mike Broihier, a retired Marine and a farmer, is challenging McConnell for the Senate seat. He's much younger than turtle man. There is another male challenger named Steve Cox and then there's former marine Amy McGrath.

McConnell is a master at cheating. They will need voter suppression and dark money flowing in from who knows where. That Russian oligarch that is planning an aluminum factory in Kentucky thanks to Mitch's efforts to get 4 month old sanctions relieved from election meddling, and his obstruction to bring bipartisan to the Senate floor for election reform is damning in itself. Lets see how many patriots put country over party in 2020 and kick Moscow Mitch to the curb. Catchy name isn't it? Trump should be proud, or jealous. It's way better than anything he ever came up with.

Well, I'm not sure McConnell even needs Russian money or skullduggery to win elections statewide. He's never been extremely popular in the state - but he always gets just enough votes in the rural areas to outweigh the metro areas like Louisville which generally dislike him. Would never count him out in elections because he plays politics like a hardball contact sport, but it's good to make him sweat a bit.

Yeah, and you expect Kentucky voters to elect a loony Dem who claimed she felt like 9/11 all over again when Trump was elected?

Hilarious-


Yet the left is fine with Cummings ripping off millions and the Clintons and Gore becoming fabulously rich by selling political favors.


We should have TERM LIMITS to minimize corruption. However, if they were put in place, very few politicians would be democrats anymore, as such a system would dry up the profits from being a democrat.

Mitch could get elected in Kentucky even after he dies. He's a couple years younger than Pelosi, so Dems won't care if he continues to run the Senate.

That's laughable. McConnell is in bed with the Chinese just like too many others in both parties. Notice how no one dares criticize China? Russia is a toothless bear so the media and Demwits know they can poke it with a stick.

Notice who else the elites don't criticize: Mexico

Follow the money

Personally I don't think he has a principled bone in his body.
Well, since Moscow Mitch is a spineless jellyfish he doesn't have any bones in his body.

Big money is behind him.

We need a constitutional amendment to take dark money out of politics. Until then, people like McConnell will not represent the voters, they will represent the financial backers.

When people say "our government is for sale" McConnell is what they are talking about, even if unaware.
