In last night's debate with Amy McGrath, Mitch McConnell evidently forgot that ancient admonition about stone throwers who dwell in glass houses.

If you ever pitched a baseball game--even in Little League--you know the feeling when you've got your stuff.

You're 10-feet-tall and unhittable.   

Amy McGrath looked like Hall of Fame Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Sandy Koufax in tonight's TV debate against Mitch McConnell. She had her stuff. 

McConnell probably figured just showing up would be enough to win the war of words. After all, he'd bested six straight Democrats, most by comfortable margins, in three dozen years.

KDP Statement on Lt. Col. Amy McGrath’s Decisive Victory in U.S. Senate Debate

The following is a statement from Ben Self, Chair of the Kentucky Democratic Party:

McGrath holds McConnell accountable for abandoning Kentucky 

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Tonight, retired Marine Lt. Col. Amy McGrath did what few have been able to do during Sen. Mitch McConnell’s 36-year career in the U.S. Senate: make him answer for his failed leadership. 

Notorious for skirting the issues, McConnell fumbled during the Gray TV U.S. Senate debate, while McGrath laid out a clear path forward for Kentucky’s future.

He’s maybe the most dangerous politician of my lifetime. He’s helped transform the Republican Party into a cult, worshiping at the altar of authoritarianism. He’s damaged our country in ways that may take a generation to undo. The politician I’m talking about, of course, is Mitch McConnell.

KENTUCKY DEMOCRATIC PARTY

Frankfort, KY — Tonight, Lt. Col. Amy McGrath and U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell will debate at 7 p.m. eastern on select Kentucky TV stations and CSPAN.

It may be the only time Kentuckians will hear directly from McConnell, who holds campaign events only on private property, refuses to have town halls, and never makes himself available to his constituents.

Mitch McConnell has been our senator as long as some of us have been alive. Is this the year we can FINALLY help him retire? Join us on The State of Kentucky for a conversation with Amy McGrath, as we talk about her campaign, her strategy, and what she is seeing as she flies (literally) around the state.
