(CNN)Kentucky Democrat Amy McGrath, a former fighter pilot who rose to national prominence last year in her failed campaign for Congress against Republican Andy Barr, is turning her sights on a new target: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
In a three-minute video released Tuesday, McGrath said McConnell has “bit by bit, year by year, turned Washington into something we all despise.”“I’m running for Senate because it shouldn’t be like this,” McGrath added.McGrath’s candidacy marks a significant recruiting coup for Democrats. She emerged as an unlikely fundraising juggernaut in her congressional race, bringing in millions of dollars after her campaign released a biographical video that went viral, and becoming a Democratic celebrity in the process.
Without Mitch and his merry band of blithering buttlicks in the Senate Trump is powerless. He’s irrelevant. He’s a TV buffoon again. His fellow Republicans scatter without Mitch to threaten and cajole and hold them all in line. They become vulnerable to persuasion. They’re allowed to fracture. They start to eat their own and I want nothing more than to sharpen the cutlery and set the damn table.
Every dollar spent by all but maybe four of the current Dem candidates trying to kick Trump out of office would be far better spent flipping the Senate and unemploying this condescending, brutal, condom-necked one-man argument for term limits and it would be a delicious form of revenge for the Supreme Court seat he stole.
