FOX BUSINESS: Kentucky Democratic Senatorial candidate Amy McGrath challenges Senator Mitch McConnell for his senate seat after announcing her 2020 bid earlier today. The former Marine Aviator details her campaign and the key issues she wants to address if elected.
"As a marine, I’m not stranger to challenges, and this is going to be one of them," McGrath told FBN's Neil Cavuto. "You know, I look at – if you look at Kentucky, it’s a very red state; it’s a very pro-Trump state, and – but one of the reasons why Kentucky voted for Donald Trump is to drain the swamp, and to do things like bring back jobs, to bring down prescription drug prices, to do big things like infrastructure. And all along the way, if you look at why he hasn’t been able to get those things done, you got to look at Senator McConnell. He stops him along the way. And I think that’s my message, you know? If you want to get these things done that Kentucky really needs, we have to elect people who care and want to – want to get these done."
