Mitch McConnell Reveals Why He Thinks His Re-Election Fight Is So Competitive

Mitch McConnell Reveals Why He Thinks His Re-Election Fight Is So Competitive

Quote:
. . .
The McConnell-Grimes matchup could end up as the most expensive Senate race in history, with spending expected to exceed $100 million.

Though Republicans have spent significantly more than Democrats in the race, McConnell apparently thinks the spending against him has struck a chord among voters. McConnell's campaign, plus outside groups backing him, have put up about three times as much as Grimes and her backers in media spending so far.

McConnell's campaign did not respond to a request for comment about his spending-related remarks.

The senator also repeatedly emphasized his leadership position in the Congress' upper chamber, saying that it made him a tempting target for Democratic attacks.

. . .
Poor McConnell, his history has caught up with him and he doesn't like how it's hurting his campaign.
Thanks from Camelot

I think McConnell is in for one HUGE defeat. Like Cantor, he will be shocked.

Why is McConnell leading Grimes in the polls and why does Grimes refuse to debate McConnell?
