Lexington Herald-Leader: Poll shows McConnell with single-digit lead over McGrath in KY with two weeks to go
EDITOR'S NOTE: Here is a statement from Marisa McNee, Kentucky Democratic Party spokesperson, on the poll: This poll reflects the clear grassroots support for Amy McGrath, and confirms that Kentucky families know Senator McConnell has been sacrificing the needs of the Commonwealth for his own political ambition. He's turned his back on Kentucky's workers and small businesses by continuing to delay another much needed round of COVID relief, going as far as telling the White House not to make a deal to help Kentuckians because Mitch has other priorities. Kentuckians are going to reject McConnell’s failed leadership and elect a true leader, Amy McGrath, in November.
